EPA, other organizations, will promote public awareness through education
National Ground Water Awareness Week is March 11 to 17. During the week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other organizations that are concerned about water resources will promote public awareness through various educational events and publications.
Forty-four percent of America’s population regularly depends on groundwater for its drinking water supply—reason enough to be groundwater aware. Another reason is that groundwater quantity and quality can strongly impact the environment. For more information on events or publications that encourage public awareness, visit the EPA website.
