Ice Jam Remnants

On April 29, hydrologic technicians Anthony Underwood and Jeremiah Pomerleau visited the USGS gaging station on the St. John River at Ninemile Bridge and found a sea of broken up, dirty ice left behind by a recent ice jam.

According to Anthony, photos don't do the size and scale of the ice chunks any justice.

Preparing geophysical equipment for deployment

USGS scientists Carol Johnson, Eric White and Tim McCobb prepare geophysical equipment for deployment in a coastal embayment April 9, 2015 in Falmouth, Massachusetts. This equipment will outline the geological conditions under the water, which will give the scientists a better understanding of the geology and hydrology of the sandy glacial deposits underlying this portion

Winter Morning Streamgaging

On January 14, 2015, hydrologic technicians Jeff Kinsey (shown) and Nick Stasulis visited USGS gaging station 01030500 on the Mattawamkeag River. Jeff and Nick visited the gage to make a streamflow measurement through the ice, but found there wasn't nearly enough ice to conduct the measurement.

Measurements during periods of backwater from ice are one of the many

Treated Wastewater from Joint Base Cape Cod was Discharged

Treated wastewater from Joint Base Cape Cod was discharged to rapid-infiltration disposal beds from 1936 to 1995. The disposal formed a groundwater contamination plume that extends more than 10 kilometers in the Cape Cod sand and gravel glacial outwash aquifer. Substantially elevated mercury concentrations extend about half the distance from the disposal beds to the kettle
