Urban growth poses dangers to groundwater drainage
What you don't see can be very important, biologist David Kampwerth told a group gathered at the Rogers Activity Center. Kampwerth, who works for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was invited to speak to the Association of Beaver Lake Environment members last week.
Kampwerth's expertise is in Karst topography, the type of terrain common in northwest Arkansas. Karst terrain is created by groundwater dissolving the original limestone bed and leaving behind underground water, caves and sinkholes.
