Adapted from a presentation given by Marvin Marvinney, a geologist with
of the Maine Department of Conservation, at the Sheepscot River
Symposium at the Chewonki Foundation Center for Environmental Education
on October 6, 2004.
Gravel aquifers provide significant base flow to streams in areas where
gravel is abundant.
