Take time to read Pioneer Press groundwater articles

The Pioneer Press this week published a fine series of articles on Minnesota’s groundwater. Read reporter John Brewer’s lead article on the sustainability issue. Read a column by outdoor writer David Orrick on why outdoor enthusiasts should care about the dependence of lakes and streams on groundwater sources,  another article on outstate water woes, and a third on an irrigation boom in Central Minnesota. Read another article on suggestions that some water-stressed Twin Cities communities should give up their dependence on wells and switch to the Mississippi River as a water source, as Minneapolis and St. Paul do.  And there was a final article on how arid Santa Fe, New Mexico, conserves water.
