About Author

Dr. Jay H. Lehr received the nation's first Ph.D. in Ground Water Hydrology from the University of Arizona in 1962, following a degree in Geological Engineering from Princeton University and a few years in the U.S. Navy's Civil Engineering Corps in the Western Pacific. After Graduate school he taught both at the University of Arizona and Ohio State University before serving 25 years as head of the Association of Ground Water Scientists and Engineers where he was editor of the Journals of Ground Water and Ground Water Monitoring Review. During that period he continued to perform academic sponsored research in many areas of environmental science. Since 1994 Dr. Lehr has been Science Director of the Heartland Institute, a free market think tank located in Chicago, IL, which, through its many publications, provides objective technical information to elected officials throughout the United States. Jack Keeley is the former Chief of Groundwater Research at the USEPA Kerr Water Resource Research Laboratory in Ada, Oklahoma.
