Pinery Room, Portage County Public Library The Science and the Policy Debate of How Groundwater Pumping is Drying Lakes, Streams and Wetlands. Speaker: Dr. George Kraft. Please join us for this free presentation exploring how groundwater and surface water are connected. When groundwater is pumped by high capacity wells, streamflows and the levels of lakes, wetlands, and streams decline; a little pumping causes small declines while large pumping amounts cause large declines. How much lakes and streams should be depleted by high capacity well pumping is an area of debate in the water-rich states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Dr. Kraft is a Professor Emeritus of Water Resources and former Director of the Center for Watershed Science and Education with the University of Wisconsin + Stevens Point and University of Wisconsin + Extension.

Co-hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Stevens Point Area and the League of Women Voters Upper Mississippi River Region Inter-League Organization
