Title of This Year’s Project: Water Quality, Soils, and Biofouling of Salvage Wells on the Closed Basin Project of the San Luis Valley, Colorado
Brief Synopsis of your Purpose and Research Goals for your project: I am doing this project to help the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) figure out when they need to clean their savage wells before they have to shut them down do to biofouling. I am hoping that with the results from my project that not only the BOR but other places with biofouling problems will be able to save time and money by not having to have wells shut off.
What interested you in your chosen topic of research? I was really intrigued with this idea because I had the opportunity to work with 35 years’ worth of data that has hardly been touched, as well as by doing this project I was able to help out the work load of the BOR.
