Wisconsin Groundwater Coordinating Council About the Groundwater Coordinating Council

The Groundwater Coordinating Council (GCC) is an interagency group that is directed by law to assist state agencies in the coordination and exchange of information related to groundwater programs.

Administrative support for the GCC is provided by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. However, the information contained herein does not necessarily reflect the views of the department.

The GCC is required by state statutes

The Groundwater Coordinating Council is required by s. 15.347, Wis. Stats. [exit DNR], to prepare a report which “summarizes the operations and activities of the council..., describes the state of the groundwater resource and its management and sets forth the recommendations of the council. The annual report shall include a description of the current groundwater quality of the state, an assessment of groundwater management programs, information on the implementation of ch. 160, Wis. Stats. [PDF exit DNR], and a list and description of current and anticipated groundwater problems.”

A report is due each August for the preceding fiscal year.
