National Ground Water Awareness Week

National Ground Water Awareness Week is next week — March 11-17, 2012. During the week, 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 ground water for its drinking water supply — reason enough to be ground water-aware. To access more information and events or publications that encourage public awareness, go to the following websites (EPA’s and the National Ground Water Association’s):
