History of Water Use from the Edwards Aquifer

Gregg Eckhardt, renowned environmental scientist, will address how our water use has evolved historically. He will describe the geology of the Edwards Aquifer, how humans have changed that geology by clearing native plants through the last several hundred years, and how we are now working to correct the damage by restoring the natural conditions.
