Cape Cod's Aquifers

Run Time: 00:04:57

Cape Cod has no significant rivers, so residents rely on rain and melting snow to replenish their underground freshwater resource. This water source can be easily contaminated. Science education specialist, Barbara Waters, works with 5th grade students in Mashpee, Massachusetts, to create models of Cape Cod's unusual underground structure. This helps them better understand where their freshwater comes from. Featured Scientist: Sherilyn Williams Stroud, Ph.D.
