Groundwater levels in some areas of Ottawa County are dropping, while sodium chloride levels in groundwater are increasing.
That’s according to findings released by the Michigan State University Institute of Water Research last fall.
On Monday, June 3 researchers will present the final report of Phase I of their study at the Ottawa County Planning Commission’s meeting. Dr. Jon Bartholic, Dr. Shu-Guang Li and Dr. David Lusch of IWR will present an in-depth hour-long overview of the report. Their presentation will include new detailed maps, 3D models and video simulations. The Planning Commission meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the board room of the Ottawa County Fillmore Street Complex, located at 12220 Fillmore St. in West Olive. The public is invited to attend.
