Waters of Wisconsin

If climate change was the star of the recently concluded Paris Climate Conference (COP21), ecology played a key supporting role.

Recently, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism (WCIJ) began publishing a series titled Failure at the Faucet, examining state water quality and supply issues.

“People think that stories are shaped by people; it fact, it’s the other way around.”

—Terry Pratchett, from his novel Witches Abroad

Happy 100th birthday to a founding father of USGS hydrology.

Aquatic invasive species (AIS), invaders, exotics—these are the aliens that live among us. For as long as humans have roamed the earth, we have brought other species with us on our travels, both intentionally and unintentionally.

Our culture is obsessed with productivity. How many times have you answered the question “How have you been?” with “Really busy, and you?” And so, we invent tools to help us get things done.

What if there were a way to reduce toxic chemicals in our Great Lakes and inland waters, while reducing greenhouse gasses, and improving air quality? I think there is a way, and I’ve been working on it for a long time.

Why aren’t we making more progress on improving water quality in our lakes and rivers, despite decades of effort? One solution we often hear is the need for more science.

It was a noble effort, the Water Division in the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
