Eddie Gazzetti (Water Resources ’12) is a hydrogeologist with the US Forest Service. His projects typically involve mining, groundwater models, and groundwater-dependent ecosystems. Eddie (on left) often visits active mine sites to promote and enforce responsible groundwater stewardship. This photo was taken during an inspection of the Greens Creek Mine in Southeast Alaska.
