Jason House, CG, PG, Woodard & Curran’s Hydrogeology Practice Leader, was elected to serve as the next president of the National Ground Water Association (NGWA). His term began December 7, 2022, with a ceremonial passing of the gavel during Groundwater Week in Las Vegas.
A senior hydrogeologist and groundwater modeler, House has spent his 27-year career honing and sharing his expertise in groundwater exploration, development, and remediation. At Woodard & Curran, he lends senior-level technical leadership, oversight, and review to a variety of groundwater water resource development, protection, and remediation projects.
As for his goals during his year-long post as NGWA president, House says he is looking forward to building upon the work of his colleagues and past presidents of the association. Major initiatives include business resources for members and an educational partnership with Oklahoma State University. Dubbed NGWA University, the program aims to address the critical shortfall of geoscience workers and improve access to groundwater essential for people around the world.
“The ability to push relevant learning content out to the industry as a whole will help elevate all of us and the work we do,” House explains. “Because of that, we’ll see long-term improvements in delivery, safety, and resource protection.”
