The IGA seeks to advance the knowledge of groundwater resources in Illinois and functions exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Any person interested in the groundwater resources of Illinois can join the IGA. Our membership includes consulting engineers, geologists and other professionals; faculty and students from colleges and universities; the public; people from federal, state, county, and municipal agencies and organizations; and people from drilling companies and other industries with an interest in groundwater.

Regular activities of the Association include spring and fall meetings, which consist of speakers, a luncheon, and discussions of current groundwater issues and research. New presentation ideas for the meetings are always welcome. The Association also sponsors grants for students conducting groundwater research at an Illinois college or university and has given over $14,000 in direct financial support to date.

Our Next Meeting

Date: April 22

Venue: Virtual
If we’ve learned anything over the last year and a half, it’s that the uncertainties of in-person meetings can make event planning difficult. To overcome this challenge we’ll be holding a virtual meeting this Spring via Zoom. You can learn more about our tennative speakers here.

Registration: Free for members current on dues, otherwise $26 (professional), and $6 (student) includes a one-year IGA membership. More information is available here.

Contribute: Do you have any interesting case-study or research you’d like to present? If so, please contact Joe Krienert (jkrienert@siu.edu) or Eric Peterson (ewpeter@ilstu.edu) to volunteer.
