Ozark Aquifer Declining - Conference Sep 17 Springfield Mo.

Here's an article on an event this week to examine, in part, the results of a $500,000 study on the decline in the Ozark Aquifer. "Shaping Our Water Future: Working to Ensure Adequate, Quality Water Supplies" is the focus of the Thursday-Friday event at the Doubletree Hotel in Springfield.
