Greetings,

 

       My Name is Jeffrey P. Rowan and I am currently studying microbiology at The University of New Hampshire at Manchester. I have been with USGS at the New Hampshire Water Science Center for one year now. I served as a Student Hydrologic Technician working with the surface water department under Mr. Richard Kiah for one year before being brought on as a Hydrologic Technician in 2015. In the past year I have been busy learning how to collect data from stream gaging stations in NH, MA, and VT. I have made over 400 discharge measurements at the various gaging stations that our office monitors.
