Groundwater is not only a story of over-exploitation, depletion, and negative impacts. There are locations in which groundwater is managed successfully and problems solved with mastery. Success comes in many forms – ranging from small steps or changes that set the stage for future gains to larger transformations within the groundwater system. These successes may result in improved management, governance, or physical outcomes.
Between June 2021 and March 2022, the IWRA Groundwater Task Force will sponsor a series of bi-monthly webinars, each of which presents and reflects on differing aspects of success. Reviewing examples of successes can contribute to increasing the visibility and examining transferability of success to other locations. Please join us in exploring and learning about these fascinating and transferable examples.
Do you have a success story to share or know of one that merits recognition? Would you like to be involved in the webinar series? The IWRA Groundwater Task Force wants to hear from you.
