Well testing

WWCC is collaborating with the regional university in our area, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF), to work on environmental management issues of pressing concern in the region. One of the initiatives the WWCC is currently pursuing is the development of a long-term database of groundwater nitrate levels in member wells.

Not only does this work begin to quantify a significant local concern, but it is an avenue to educate farmers about the connection between land use practices and groundwater quality.

Members of WWCC agree to participate in our well-testing study.

Dr. Jill Coleman-Wasik is the lead researcher conducting this study with our group.
