NGWA Director of Science and Technology Bill Alley, Ph.D., pictured here, virtually presented “Groundwater, Wells, and Coronavirus” on September 28 to the National Environmental Health Association’s recently launched Private Water Network (PWN). The presentation was based on the article with the same title cowritten by Alley and NGWA’s Manager of Regulatory Affairs Chuck Job in the May issue of Water Well Journal®.
The PWN is a virtual community of practice for professionals and specialists working to protect the public’s health from contaminants in private drinking water sources.
Alley, who previously served as chief, Office of Groundwater for the U.S. Geological Survey for almost two decades, is also an expert advisor for the Water Policy Group on groundwater associated with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 (ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all). Water Policy Group is a global network of water sector experts who have been decision-makers and trusted advisers within governments and international bodies handling water policy and strategy.
