The San Ramon Valley Democratic Club welcomes Dr. Andrew Thompson from the Atmospheric, Earth, and Energy Division of  Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. We have heard about the contaminated drinking water in Flint, Michigan, but did you know parts of California have contaminated water due to agricultural and industrial runoff? How great is the problem? What has caused it? What can be done to mitigate it? Come to our meeting to learn the answers to these questions from an expert.

Dr. Tompson’s work has addressed integrated groundwater supply, groundwater contamination, and reservoir engineering problems, with recent efforts in pollution of systems affected by nuclear testing, geothermal prospect evaluation, groundwater availability in arid environments, aquifer storage and recovery, and hydrologic impacts from regional climate change. He has also participated in broad based scientific and technical educational activities relating to water supply and pollution problems in California, the American West, the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Central Asia.

Dr. Tompson served on the editorial boards of Water Resources Research for 10 years and Advances in Water Resources for 18 years, and he continues to serve on the editorial board of Computational Geosciences. He received an ScB from Brown University in 1980, a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1985, and spent two years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral associate before moving to Livermore.

Please join us at 6:00 pm to informally talk about the latest political news or to just socialize and have fun.
