Julie Zettl awarded the Thomas Krug Memorial Scholarship

Julie Zettl is this year’s recipient of the Thomas Krug Memorial Scholarship. The Thomas Krug Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Thomas Krug, who showed immense commitment to environmental stewardship through his 30-year career at Geosyntec applying novel approaches to environmental remediation. Julie’s research project reflects Thomas’ commitment to environmental stewardship in northern Canada. She will take part in a study of groundwater quality in the Liard Basin near the community of Fort Liard. Dr. Beth Parker is the Principal Investigator of this multi-disciplinary, cross-institutional project.

A network of monitoring wells will be installed as part of the research project and later will be operated by the Government of the Northwest Territories. The research will enable the development of a groundwater monitoring network that will support the Northwest Territories water stewardship strategy to ensure water remains clean, abundant and productive.

More information and the full article can be found on the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute website.

Congratulations Julie!
