Groundwater Withdrawals Information Session
Thursday, September 22, Pilesgrove

43rd Annual Environmental Congress, Responding to Climate Change Locally
Friday, September 30th, West Windsor


Groundwater Withdrawals are an Environmental Issue!
Thursday, September 22

     6:00pm to 8:30pm
Pilesgrove Municipal Building
1180 Route 40
Pilesgrove, NJ  08098

On the East Coast we tend to view water as an unlimited resource. After all, it seems to rain an awful lot most of the time and there appears to be plenty of water for our human needs as well as that needed to support aquatic resources. We need, however, to plan to meet our water supply and aquatic resource needs not only on a daily basis, but during drought, when water is indeed limited. Without this type of planning, we may find that we simply do not have enough water to meet even our basic water needs during periods of low rainfall.

This workshop focuses on why we need to look at groundwater withdrawals as an environmental issue.  It will include an illustrated look at basic groundwater/aquifer hydrology, examples of how and where pumping has impacted people, streams and ecosystems, New Jersey water policy and the role of water conservation in the Upper Salem watershed.

Program includes:

Rich Bizub, Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Director for Water Programs.  
Groundwater basics, water policy in New Jersey, groundwater withdrawal impacts & the Upper Salem Water Supply report prepared by Robert Kecskes, NJDEP retired Water Supply Planner.

Meredith Brown, American Littoral Society, Delaware Bay Program Coordinator Water consumption & conservation in the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer; water use audits for the home and business

Discussion & Networking
