I heard recently that the USGS is basically cutting a major groundwater quality and water level monitoring network, and they're handing it all over to the State which is woefully unprepared to make full use of it. So we'll lose out on important water quality monitoring.
One more way we're making America dumb again!
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
