Seminar Announcement

"When Over Meets Under: Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions (GSI)"

May 25, 2004 at McCamly Plaza Hotel in Battle Creek.

Registration deadline is May 14.

This seminar is organized by the Michigan Water Environment Association
(MWEA) Groundwater and Watershed Management Committees (coordinated by Chris
Kosmowski of the City of Battle Creek), with support from the MI-AWWA
Groundwater Committee, MDEQ, USGS and the City of Battle Creek.

We have lined up a panel of nationally- and internationally-renowned experts

well worthwhile. All presentation material will be included with
