FLOW will host a livestream event – Groundwater: Making the Invisible Visible on World Water Day & Every Day – on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, from 12 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. EST. The online session will offer perspectives on the critical importance of our groundwater resources and the work of the Michigan Groundwater Table, which is convened by FLOW. The Groundwater Table is made up of 22 knowledgeable and influential stakeholders from local government, academia, and regulatory agencies focused on the state of Michigan’s groundwater, the source of drinking water for 45% of Michigan’s population.

The Groundwater Table has agreed groundwater needs to be elevated as a state policy priority for long-term Great Lakes protection. The Groundwater Table has explored how data and scientific knowledge can be used to advance groundwater policy reform and management, enhance public understanding of groundwater-related issues and challenges, develop consensus-based findings for groundwater protection, and help secure needed resources to better protect human health and the environment.

FLOW Advisor and Groundwater Table convenor Skip Pruss will moderate and lead the discussion, with co-presenters including:
* Michigan State Rep. Padma Kuppa
* Dr. Alan Steinman, Director of the Annis Water Resources Institute at Grand Valley State University
* Dave Hamilton, retired MDEQ/TNC groundwater hydrologist
* Andrew Hogarth, retired MDEQ Remediation and Redevelopment Division Chief
* Joshua Mosher, Assistant Director, EGLE Remediation and Redevelopment Division
