Land use and municipal water supplies

Stephanie DeVriesDr. Stephanie DeVries has left the Wisconsin Geological Survey to be an assistant professor of hydrology and aquatic geochemistry in the Department of Biology, Geology and Environmental Science at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Dr. DeVries recently completed her work as a post-doctoral fellow at the Survey, studying the role of nitrate contamination in Wisconsin municipal water supplies. Her work was supported by a Survey partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute.

DeVries will be teaching physical hydrology and physical geology this fall at UT Chattanooga as she continues her professional relationships with the Survey, the City of Waupaca, and the Wisconsin DNR. She anticipates receiving a grant from UTC to expand her groundwater modeling projects.

Stephanie is looking forward to Tennessee’s warm weather and to enjoying the beautiful scenery between the mountains of southeast Tennessee and the Tennessee River. Her list of future outdoor activities for the Chattanooga area includes kayaking, hiking, backpacking, and spelunking.
