Clean water is one of the world’s most precious resources. People use water every day for a variety of reasons, such as drinking, bathing, recreation, agriculture, cooling, and industry. Although water plays an essential role in every person’s life, many individuals are not aware that much of their water comes from the ground.
National Ground Water Awareness Week, an annual observance sponsored by the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), is March 10-16, 2013. The purpose of this observance is to stress how important ground water is to the health of all people and the environment1.
