County Board Gets Education on Groundwater

The Board heard a presentation from George Kraft, director of the Center for Watershed Science and Education, on the local effects of groundwater pumping.
According to Kraft, 2014 was the 5th wettest year since the 1950s, but noted the county has several hundred high capacity wells, with 80 percent of that water used for irrigation.
