Spruill talks aquifers

Dr. Richard Spruill of East Carolina University has played a critical role in the understanding of the Upper Floridan Aquifer saltwater intrusion issue on Hilton Head Island. Spruill and his associate in the firm of Groundwater Management Associates, Chris Foldesi, have worked on monitoring the intrusion and assisting the PSD in planning its use of the Upper Floridan groundwater source.

This week, Spruill updated local utility leaders on the state of the aquifer during a presentation at the PSD. The future, Spruill said, remains "conjunctive use" -- optimizing groundwater withdrawals while continuing the use of Savannah River surface water for drinking water on Hilton Head Island.
