Learn about potential solutions to issues affecting the U.S. Great Plains aquifer system — which represents a microcosm of all the challenges facing water allocation and land management today — during this two-day conference that seeks to prepare and assist diverse communities in planning for the great unknowns to sustain the aquifer system for the longest period of time.

The huge variations in the system’s saturated thickness create challenges that affect the agricultural and domestic water supply.
