I had a nice little morning out in the field. A co-worker wants to do a groundwater study and thought about using some observation wells that were drilled several years ago. I attempted to keep the data collection process going myself, but it proved a huge time-sink for me. It would probably take 3-4 weeks of intense field work every day to do a complete data collection run. The one thing I still have is a knowledge of where all of the sites are as well as the coordinates programmed into my GPS. So my co-worker took me out to one of the sites and together we tried to track down as many of the wells as we could. It was rather fun hiking through the forest along the river. We found most of the sites, but a few will require the use of a metal detector since they are probably buried. I was also reminded of why I never collected data in the summer. It was Mosquito Central out there. Zika here I come!
