FROM SPRINGS TO SPRINKLERS: WATER ISSUES IN THE SOUTH MOUNTAIN REGION
Location: Shippensburg University
From trout fishing in our spring-fed creeks to the ice cold glass we enjoy on a hot summer’s day, water is at the heart of our quality of life. Over the years, new demands on ground and surface water have created challenges for conserving these important resources. Patrick Bowling (Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection) provided an overview of the how geology influences aquatic systems, and how human behavior and development is impacting these systems. Bowling was joined by Dr. Christopher Woltemade (Shippensburg University) and Michael Christopher (Washington Township) for a panel discussion to conclude the evening.
