Conference Description:

The MGWA Fall Conference will examine issues related to urban groundwater protection and management. Nearly three-fourths of Minnesota residents live in urban areas and continued growth is expected over the next decade. As we continue to grow our demands and impacts on our geologic environment continue to increase.

The conference will bring to light groundwater quality issues of concern facing urban areas and the work that is being done to address them. Speakers will explore the current status and trends of chemicals in our groundwater from the scale of a single spring or well to regional aquifer systems. Presentations will cover aspects of the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination in the eastern part of the Twin Cities, chloride concentrations in our shallow groundwaters, and address emerging concerns including detection of human viruses in deep groundwater in Wisconsin.
