WEBINAR: Groundwater Policy Developments

Groundwater researchers and policy experts from Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan came together for a free, virtual Great Lakes Freshwater Symposium on Tuesday, February 13!

Panelists discussed groundwater policy developments and challenges in their states, and what kind of research is needed related to factors such as managing agricultural contaminants and PFAS.

This event is part of a quarterly water symposium series sponsored by the Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin, and the Great Lakes Higher Education Consortium, an initiative of the Council of the Great Lakes Region. These events seek to encourage and advance collaborations, share science across borders, encourage students in research and career opportunities and present research that is solving real-world problems.
