Rising Groundwater In Worcester County

Kim Klump
On April 9, 2019, Worcester County Environmental Specialist Kim Klump addressed the Snow Hill Rotary Club on the topic of "Hydrology and Its Effect on the Eastern Shore".

Klump presented data collected from her thirty years with the County government showing a trend of subsidence. Subsidence occurs when groundwater is extracted from aquifers faster that it is being replenished from the surface. The evidence shows the need for planning to address these trends on the Eastern Shore.
