Tuesday, April 27, 2021. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Promoting Resilient Groundwater and Holistic
Watershed Management in Alaska’s Kenai Lowlands. Coowe Walker, Kachemak Bay National
Estuarine Research Reserve; Mark Rains, University of South Florida. Sponsored by National
Estuarine Research Reserve. More information here.
In this webinar, project team members will share how their findings generated new insight into
groundwater in southern Kenai Lowland watersheds, and how their model revealed the
precariousness of groundwater resources and the potential for competition among users. They
will discuss how engagement with stakeholders has increased awareness of the need to
actively manage this limited resource, and how the community has begun to shift policies and
practices to build toward more resilient groundwater resources.
