Groundwater Research Advisory Council Members

Home / About Us / Groundwater Research Advisory Council Members

As established by Wisconsin’s Groundwater Law of 1984, the state provides funding annually to the UW System to support groundwater research and monitoring. In 1989, WRI became the UW System’s lead institution for coordinating the proposal solicitation and review processes for prioritizing UWS groundwater project funding from the annual Joint Solicitation for Wisconsin Groundwater Research and Monitoring Program competition. WRI’s priorities for groundwater research are established annually by the Wisconsin Groundwater Research Advisory Council (GRAC) made up of representatives from academia, federal and state agencies, and the private sector. The GRAC convenes annually to set priorities and to review and make recommendations to WRI on the selection of UW System-funded groundwater projects.
