Short Biography

Terrence Conlon has over 20 years of experience in ground-water hydrology. He currently supervises more than 20 hydrologists and technicians in the in the USGS Oregon Water Science Center. Terrence conducted studies of ground-water availability in the Willamette and Umatilla Basins in Oregon, and in the Fox River Valley, Waukesha, Sheyboygan, and Menominee areas in Wisconsin with the USGS. Before joining the USGS, he worked as an environmental consultant and with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He has undergraduate (Wesleyan University) and graduate (University of Wisconsin-Madison) degrees in geology.
