described the function of Citizens Advisory Committee and its
Subcommittees. The groundwater website has our subcommittee mission
listed, along with those of the other subcommittees.
We discussed our subcommittee mission, “To design and implement
long term monitoring and assessment plan for groundwater quality and
quantity”. We expect
to spend one to two years for initial design and implementation.
Long Term Goals.
Regarding databases: DNR (GRIN), Environmental Task Force Lab,
DATCP, State Lab of Hygiene, Portage County - info is in different
formats, no standard parameters exist.
Locational reliability of much of the older data is suspect.
to know depth of wells to know which portion of the aquifer is being
sampled. Confidentiality of
private well water quality data needs to be considered.
and assessment can use data from monitoring wells, private wells,
municipal wells. Stora Enso (fka
Consolidated Papers) has seven years of data from wells surrounding sludge
landspreading sites, but it’s all confidential.
How about tying into education system.
Have students find out info about their families’ private wells,
and any known quality/quantity problems.
for next meeting:
Think about long term monitoring and assessment needs, i.e.
database needs, need for continuous monitoring (not just spotty,
project based). Need to
define data gaps, and impediments to access to available data.
limit ourselves to what we think might be possible.
Determine what we would like to do and then determine what means we
need to employ to get it done.
will bring bulleted lists of starting objectives.
and Ray will provide descriptions of existing databases available. Each member will put something on the webboard on the
groundwater website (http//www.uwsp.edu/water/portage/) to evaluate its
potential for discussion purposes.
will be monthly.
Work products will be due one week before meetings.
