Water quality in the RiverTown area is vital to business, recreation, and life. Two of the articles in the Land & Water series deal with water quality. The first is about how area managers monitor and maintain water quality, and the second is about how the karst geology of the area affects how pollutants reach groundwater which is the source of almost all drinking water in the region.
