Lecture on “The Relationship between Kumamoto’s Groundwater and the Shirakawa River Middle Basin” was Held at Ozu High School!
On Thursday, June 9, 2022, a special lecture by Professor Emeritus Tsutomu Ichikawa of Tokai University was held for second grade students of the Science and Mathematics Department at Kumamoto Prefectural Ozu High School. The lecture was planned as a preliminary study for field training at Lake Ezu.
At the beginning of the lecture, the participants watched “Water: The Essential Resource for Life”, an educational DVD produced by the Foundation.
Subsequently, Prof. Ichikawa gave a presentation on the relationship between groundwater in Kumamoto and the middle reaches of the Shirakawa River.
Second grade students of the Science and Mathematics Department at Ozu High School commented that it was a good opportunity to learn about ‘the characteristics of groundwater in Kumamoto and the importance of the agricultural land in Ozu and Kikuyo towns around the school which support them’ and ‘the importance of environmental conservation activities such as groundwater flooding projects’.
