NARD is excited to announce that we have partnered with NeDNR to organize a two-part Groundwater Model Training that will be led by Dr. Sorab Panday. The following is a brief outline of the two-part training.  Please register using the attached registration form.


Part 1: Basic Modeling Overview – Was hosted in Lincoln on Thursday, Oct. 26.

Part 2: More In-depth Modeling Instruction - this will be a 2 ½  day training, hosted at Embassy Suites in Lincoln beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24, and concluding the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 26. This will be an in-person only training. The objective of this 2 ½ day training is to provide a basic capability for manipulating a groundwater model and reviewing the results. The intended audiences are hydrogeologists and groundwater modelers at all levels of expertise who want to review models and make small changes and run/process results to evaluate impact of changes.

Attendees may be responsible for a share of the presenter’s travel expenses, as well as any direct costs for meeting space, meals, or materials provided with the training – these costs will be divided equally and billed back at cost to participating districts following the training. Travel accommodations will be the responsibility of attendees.
