There is no mechanism on Earth for creating large quantities of freshwater. Over six million people depend on the Potomac River watershed for their water and the Bull Run Mountains (BRM) is a groundwater repository and its perennial streams a constant feeder into this system. This summer BRM perennial streams like Little Bull Run, pictured below, ran dry for the first time in memory. What does this mean about groundwater levels in the mountains region and the effects on the entire watershed? Join BRMC and Elizabeth Ward as we dive into the increasingly concerning topic of where and how we obtain our water for everyday use and the impacts we have on it. The speaker series will be held at the Mountain House located at 17405 Beverley Mill Drive Broad Run, VA 20137 on Saturday, November, 11th from 2 pm to 4 pm. Admission is free. Elizabeth Ward retired as President of Washington Advisors, and began her volunteer career and the blog, Green Risks. Elizabeth is the Vice Chair of the Prince William Sustainability Commission, and served as a Director of the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District for 10 years.
