Understanding the geology of the Philadelphia area and processes involved with groundwater recharge is critical to design of stormwater infiltration facilities. The presentation will touch on glacial outwash sediments, urban fill, Wissahickon Schist bedrock, injection wells, and groundwater mounding, all of which influence groundwater recharge in our region. Investigative methods and project examples will be discussed.
