In this episode recorded live at Groundwater Week 2022, anchor Brock Yordy talks to both the outgoing and incoming presidents of the National Ground Water Association. President Brian Snelton is preparing to hand the reins to president-elect Jason House, a hydrogeologist — only the second time a scientist has led the group. It’s episode 41.

“I think it’s critical for geologists, scientists and engineers to understand what the drilling industry has learned over the years and what they have to offer to us,” House says.

This episode covers:

  • Groundwater Week 2022
  • Influencing groundwater policy
  • Hiring and staffing issues for trades
  • Collaboration between drillers and geologists
  • NGWA’s Legislative Fly-in
  • Talking to young people about drilling and groundwater work
