Paul Heisig has worked as a hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey on Long Island (1985-89) and Upstate New York (1989-present).


His work has focused on:

1)     the effects of land use on ground-water quality and stream low-flow water quality

2)     use of a multidisciplinary approach to conceptualize the framework of bedrock and glacial aquifer systems and associated water resources in a variety of hydrogeologic settings in eastern New York

3)     groundwater within the dissected Appalachian Plateau of central NY - flow, geochemistry, and methane occurrence

4)     mapping sand and gravel aquifers in upstate NY


Heisig earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in geology at the SUNY Geneseo and Ohio State University, respectively.
