The University of Vermont has three monitoring well nests used to aid Geohydrology, Environmental Geology, Engineering Geology, and Civil Engineering classes throughout the academic year. The wells were drilled in April of 1996 by Chevalier Drilling Co., Inc. of Highgate Springs, Vermont. Top of casing water levels, temperature, and conductivity were taken weekly from July to November 1999. Samples were collected monthly and analyzed for anions and cations at the University's Plant and Soil Science laboratory. Data suggests the need for a university road salt policy change in favor of the environment.
