Keep Sedona Beautiful will continue to virtually host our Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series on Wednesday, January 13th at 5:00 pm. This month’s guest is Dr. Edward W. Wolfe, a retired geologist who is currently focused on applying his knowledge to the interpretation and explanation of the area’s important water-resource issues.
According to Dr. Wolfe, “The groundwater serving Prescott-region residents is diminishing at a rate that is unsustainable in the long term with a warming climate and an ever-expanding population. Although the data focuses on the Prescott and upper Verde River region, the conclusions have implications for much of Northern Arizona. Will we take the actions necessary to reduce groundwater loss?”
Dr. Wolfe’s presentation will be a brief primer on groundwater basics, discussing reasons why our groundwater supply is diminishing, and describing some strategies to address its depletion.
