The Future of Water for the Quad Cities
Saturday, September 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
How long will our water last? While scientists can’t accurately answer this question, they do know that the groundwater that supplies Quad City residents is being pumped at a far greater rate than it is being replenished. This situation, or overdraft, has already resulted in hundreds of failing family wells, and is poised to threaten the upper Verde River and the very livability of our rural areas. Three water experts from the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) will explain the dangers of the overdraft and present ways to achieve sustainable water use at a CWAG-sponsored Zoom Webinar on Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. – noon. The Zoom link is posted in the “Next Meeting” section at www.cwagaz.org.
The presenters are Gary Beverly, CWAG president; Peter Kroopnik, CWAG Science Committee Chair; and Ed Wolfe, CWAG Board member. CWAG is a local citizens group advocating for a secure water future for Prescott and central Yavapai County and for the protection of the upper Verde River.
