The National Ground Water Association will be hosting a virtual symposium on December 7, 2020 from 11am to 4:35pm Eastern Time to discuss current groundwater issues such as availability and competing demands, sustainability, contaminants, and land use planning.
While not known to be transmitted in groundwater, COVID-19 has brought the issue of public health to the forefront of our everyday activities. Groundwater provides slightly more than 40 percent of our drinking water supplies — always a public health concern in one form or another.
This symposium — led by William Alley, Ph.D., Steven Wilson, Karen Kinsella, Ph.D., Michael J. Schnieders, PG, PH-GW, John Farner, Curtis Cooper, Ph.D., Flint Hall, and Sara Brock — is designed to share fundamental information about the groundwater resource, its occurrence and vulnerabilities, and current issues of public concern.
