Drinking water is important to your health because water lubricates your joints. It makes your skin healthy and it regulates body temperature. It dissolves minerals and nutrients and makes them more accessible to your body. It cushions your brain and your spinal cord.

Residents in northwestern Wisconsin receive drinking water from more than 56,000 wells and  the first of the 2018-18 River Talks presentations focuses on regional groundwater issues.

“Shedding Light on Groundwater” will be presented by Kelsey Prihoda, a researcher with the Lake Superior Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Prihoda will answer questions about private well-water testing, describe contaminants that are of concern in groundwater and outline efforts to acquire baseline data for groundwater conditions in northwestern Wisconsin. She will also provide water sample kits to people who are interested in collecting their well water to contribute to a public groundwater database.

The 2018-19 River Talks Series season is the sixth year of science cafe-style evening talks about the St. Louis River Estuary. Hosted by the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Minnesota and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs, these informal public talks will be held monthly through May 2019 at the Reserve’s Lake Superior Estuarium on Barker’s Island in Superior.

Please plan to join us for River Talks scheduled for November 14, 2018 and January 9, February 13, March 5, April 10 and May 8, 2019. The March 5 talk will be held in conjunction with the St. Louis River Summit.
