Walking on Water: Essays for the Central Sands




This collection of eighteen essays presents the perspectives of irrigated farmers, conservationists, agricultural scientists, hydrologists, social scientists, educators, politicians, stream stewards, and lake residents on the impacts of irrigation pumping on central Wisconsin lakes, streams, and wetlands. The essays represent a starting point for developing understandings amongst the parties. By opening up communications, the editors hope to identify and shape implementation strategies for the preservation of Wisconsin's ground and surface waters.

Editors:
A.J. Bussan, Department of Horticulture, UW-Madison and UW-Extension
George Kraft, College of Natural Resources, UW-Stevens Point and UW-Extension
