Major Groundwater Measure Coming Up For Assembly Hearing 3/31

Wisconsin groundwater needs far-reaching conservation, and the legislative process to do just that takes a major step forward on March 31. Here is information from one of the key advocates - - the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters:

We'll never run out of water in Wisconsin, right? Well, think again.

Some of our rivers and lakes, like the Little Plover River, Long Lake, and others are running dry.

Where did all the water go?

It's drying up because our groundwater is being over-pumped.

From the drinking water that comes out of our taps, to the fishing and swimming holes where we like to relax, to the beer we brew and the cheese and paper we make, we depend heavily on groundwater in Wisconsin.

You can help.

Support Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters and our fight to pass the Groundwater Protection Bill before our groundwater dries up!

The problem is - we're not just running out of groundwater.

We're running out of time.

The Assembly Hearing is on March 31st - and we need to get a vote and a win on this important bill - before the legislative wells run dry. We also need resources - to activate our membership to send letters to the editor, make calls to their legislators - and hold them accountable!
