The Earth Resource Program

The Washington Geological Survey formed the Earth Resource Program in 2021 to strengthen Washington’s knowledge of geologic carbon storage, geothermal energy, and groundwater. The program works with a wide range of stakeholders, including government agencies, tribes, industries, and universities. The program publishes maps and data that will enable responsible implementation of carbon storage and geothermal energy projects in Washington.
