While sampling water in New York's Southern Tier, Syracuse and ESF students had a chance to meet some of the people who could benefit the most from their data: New York landowners.

Tucked into a sleeping bag on the top of a hill in southern New York, Egan Waggoner watched as a stream of meteors flashed across the dark sky. A landowner had allowed Waggoner and his teammates to stay the night in her backyard in return for having her well’s water tested earlier that day. The next morning, he rose and roused the others after the family had gone to church, and they continued on to the next well.
