Rising Groundwater In Worcester County

Kim Klump
On April 9, 2019, Worcester County Environmental Specialist Kim Klump addressed the Snow Hill Rotary Club on the topic of "Hydrology and Its Effect on the Eastern Shore".

Klump presented data collected from her thirty years with the County government showing a trend of subsidence. Subsidence occurs when groundwater is extracted from aquifers faster that it is being replenished from the surface. The evidence shows the need for planning to address these trends on the Eastern Shore.

Kim is pictured here with Club President Chris Welch.

Worcester County States Attorney Kris Heiser

Kris Heiser
At the March 19, 2019, meeting of the Snow Hill Rotary Club, Worcester County States Attorney Kris Heiser spoke about her priorities for the office. 

First, is the commitment to “community prosecution,” which is to provide a specific attorney as a point of contact for each community in the county.  Second, an increased focus on vulnerable victim crimes, which are typically underreported.  And third, to seek alternatives to trial for eligible candidates such as first offenders for minor offenses. 

In carrying out these priorities, she intends to increase community outreach by her office in partnership with police.
