News - May 2013 - American Ground Water Trust Excites Fourth Graders at the 2013 NH Drinking Water Week Festival

May Day in Concord, New Hampshire provided an appropriately showery day for the NH Department of Environmental Services 2013 Drinking Water Week Festival for fourth grade students from around the state. The American Ground Water Trust has helped plan and teach at this event since its inception in 2002. Over 350 fourth grade students from area schools participated in the festival, which was held this year at the Concord Open Water Bog - Gilmanton NHDrinking Water Treatment Plant. Garret Graaskamp, AGWT Hydrogeologist, assisted the students as they used AGWT’s hands-on groundwater model to explore how groundwater moves between lakes and rivers and through the sandy glacial soils and hard bedrock that form New Hampshire’s beautiful landscapes.
