The CAESER Division of Transportation and Logistics, the Southeast Transportation Workforce Center, and the Memphis World Trade Club were pleased to partner again to host the 16th annual State of Freight conference! The conference covered discussions around the future of freight – including electrification and alternative fuels, state of freight in Tennessee, and where we are headed with AI, robotics, and autonomy
Memphians and other residents of Shelby County have long touted their high-quality drinking water, but the underground resource is now threatened by historical pollution, as natural gaps, or “breaches” in the protective clay layer above the Memphis aquifer have been discovered.
CAESER was awarded $1 million a year from Memphis Light, Gas and Water (MLGW) to study clay breaches in the Memphis aquifer and their impacts to water quality. Little is known about the size, shape and characteristics of these breaches, including how quickly water and contamination can travel through them.
Over 200 individuals attended the first meeting to learn about the study. The meeting’s video provides an overview of the Memphis aquifer, the goals of the research, then outlines the first five projects initiated in 2018. The last 30 minutes was reserved for questions from the public.
This was the second public meeting about the aquifer study and contained similar information to the April 2019 meeting. Additionally, the meeting included a poster presentation about the five initiated projects with 30 minutes of questions from a new audience.
The meetings are conducted in partnership with Memphis Light, Gas and Water utility.
