Sierra Club’s “Water for All” at Stevens Point, WI 5/17/17

Sierra Club brought their Water Quantity awareness paper to Stevens Point last Wednesday. Not directly related to CAFOs and their contamination, but more so related to the enormous water draws that many of these (animal or vegetable) Factories take out of our groundwater.

There will be about 4 or 5 of these video shorts from that presentation… this first one is the opening remarks from Portage County Executive Patty Dreier, and Bill Davis, Exec. Dir. of John Muir Chapter.

George Kraft, Professor of Water Resources and Director of the Center for Watershed Science and Education, UW-Stevens Point. On the impacts of huge numbers of high-capacity wells drawing from groundwater, upon the lakes, streams, and wetlands in the Central Sands region of Wisconsin.

Francie Rowe, Professor and Chair, Biological Sciences Dept., Edgewood College, Madison WI

At Sierra Club’s Water for All presentation on Wednesday the 17th, Carl Sindebrand explains the “Public Trust Doctrine” of water in Wisconsin.
