Leading Indicators - Groundwater


Abstract:
At one time eastern North Carolina had a good supply of freshwater. Now aquifers that supply drinking water are dropping, some as much as fifteen feet per year. New state regulations require user restrictions on aquifer withdrawals by up to 75 percent over the next sixteen years. The article discusses this water crisis and the work of ECU geologist Dr. Richard Spruill in dealing with this problem.
