Interview with Dr. Sam Kung
The groundwater of Wisconsin’s central sands region is a vital resource that sustains a diverse regional economy comprised of rural communities, businesses and agricultrual industries along with fishing and recreational interests.
During the past two decades, increasing business development, population growth and an expanding recreational market have led to concerns regarding the long-term quality and availability of groundwater in the central sands region.
In response to these concerns, the University of Wisconsin-through the Wisconsin Institute of Sustainable Agriculture-is launching the Central Wisconsin Water Initiative led by Dr. Sam Kung, professor of soil science at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
