UMass Amherst researcher asks for Massachusetts water samples

University of Massachusetts Amherst hydrologist David Boutt and his research team are asking to receive water samples from citizens to help them establish a high-resolution map and database of natural chemical signatures, that is hydrogen and oxygen isotopes found in surface water, precipitation and groundwater.

The samples will help them to better understand the isotopic composition of state waters and how groundwater is changing as a result of human activities. Participants will receive a brief report on the isotopic composition of their water compared to regional waters. Read more.
