Groundwater Resources of Southeastern Wisconsin

Most Wisconsinites get their water supply from groundwater. Yet that supply is out-of-sight/out-of-mind and inconsistently managed. The presentation introduces the basics of groundwater and focuses on the supply, use and quality of our local resource. Cases of groundwater management and mismanagement from Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington counties are presented, as well as the future viability of this water supply in response to growing population, climate change and other stresses.

Cherkauer was the senior hydrogeologist in UWM’s Geosciences program from 1972 to 2009. His research focused on groundwater supply and management, especially in SE Wisconsin, groundwater interaction with surface waters and the impact of human activities on our water supplies.
