On Oct. 11, Iowa Geological Survey staff will demonstrate use of a high-powered drill rig to conduct geologic mapping in the area that will support land use planning and decision-making.
The Iowa Geological Survey (IGS) at the University of Iowa participates in the STATEMAP program, funded by the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The program provides funding to states to conduct detailed geologic mapping with an emphasis on solving environmental issues. This type of mapping helps Iowans understand what’s beneath the Earth’s surface, and how the local geology affects their day-to-day lives.
A field day for rural and urban community members and leaders, farmers, and stakeholders interested in learning more about geological mapping and the Middle Cedar River Watershed is set for 10 am on Oct. 11 at Richard Wyckoff’s property, 3112 56th St. Trail, Urbana, Iowa.
