FALL 2013: THE SUSTAINABILITY OF IRRIGATION IN WISCONSIN

Agricultural irrigation is expanding significantly in several regions of the state, even as concerns are increasing about its possible effects on water resources and the adequacy of regulatory oversight. This is heightening issues of competing demand among agricultural, commercial, recreational and property interests. This Community Environmental Forum series will explore the science, geology, policy and law surrounding Wisconsin's critical groundwater resource.
