“Water in Nebraska” will be presented by Doug Hallum, survey hydrologist, at noon on Thursday, June 21, at the next library noon program.

Hallum will provide an overview of Nebraska’s water supply, its sinks and fluxes, and long-term changes that have been observed or hypothesized, spokeswoman Terri Johnson said.

The talk will touch on the nature of the High Plains aquifer and other aquifers in our state. The talk will conclude with an opportunity for attendees to ask specific questions relating to water in Nebraska.

To plan seating, the library asks people to make reservations by calling 535-8036, ext. 3301, but does welcome last-minute attendees.

People are welcome to bring in their own brown bag lunch.

He has experience in oil and gas exploration, business, numerical flow modeling, and integrated water management planning.
