Hydrologic Technicians at a Streamgage at Elizabeth Mine in Vermont

Detailed Description

Hydrologic technicians Joel Kneisley and Alexander Kind installed a streamgage and precipitation gage at Elizabeth Mine in Strafford, Vermont. This copper mine was abandoned in 1957 and added to the EPA Superfund Program’s National Priority List in 2001. These streamflow and precipitation gages are defining a water budget at the site by monitoring outflow from the settling pond and precipitation within the passive treatment system from May to October 2024.
