Inquiry: COLIN D. POLSKY and R. GIL PONTIUS JR- Groundwater in Massachussets

Program: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 27, 2008 - 4:53pm

Atlanta, Georgia is facing critical water shortages, as are many major cities in the southwest. Think it can’t happen here? Massachusetts has plenty of rainfall in most years, yet lately many city reservoirs have been running critically low and there has been an increase in summer water bans. What is going on? The answer lies in poor water management, profligate water use and unbridled and uncontrolled sprawl, perhaps the single greatest environmental concern in New England. Inquiry welcomes COLIN D. POLSKY and R. GIL PONTIUS JR. of Clark University’s Graduate School of Geography and the George Perkins Marsh Institute who have been carefully investigating the effect that Mac-mansions with golf-course lawns have on the water we all need to live.
