National Groundwater Awareness Week

National Groundwater Awareness Week
is March 6 -12, 2016

Now well into its second decade, Groundwater Awareness Week spotlights one of the world’s most important resources: groundwater.



Who should be “aware” of groundwater? Quite simply, everyone.


Groundwater is essential to the health and well-being of humanity and the environment. Whether you’re on a public water system or a private well, whether you are a health care official, policymaker, regulator, or someone interested in water resources or the environment in general undefined groundwater awareness is important to you.


Visit the National Groundwater Association’s education page to learn more about National Groundwater Awareness Week promotional activities. You can also find more information on groundwater and water well stewardship by going to NGWA's Web site for well owners,
