Nadine Romero Nadine is a licensed hydrogeologist who has worked for the last 30 years in federal, state, tribal and local government as well as the private sector. She has conducted around 300 hydrogeologic investigations with more than half of those in Thurston County and has set up a large array of ground water and surface water monitoring stations regionally. Nadine is an Adjunct Professor of Geology in the St. Martin's University Engineering Department where she teaches Physical Geology, CE 220, and also teaches as an Adjunct Professor for South Puget Sound Community College for the last decade. "I really enjoy teaching hydrology and geology to students and the public-- it is a fascinating region of the country to be in--one must strive to fuse the entire hydrologic picture together to protect fish and humans". In her full-time county role, Nadine provides in-depth hydrogeologic analyses for various county departments ranging from building ground water models for water supply development and critical area impacts to low temperature geochemistry and contaminant assessments such as septic fields. Nadine is also working on a research project in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado understanding the role and behavior of mineralogic weathering to global climate and carbon dioxide uptake on large granitic terrains. Her life-long work is to help the public understand hydrologic and geologic systems for sustainable practices.
