Plan Now for Protect Your Groundwater Day on September 10th!

Protect Your Groundwater Day (PYGWD) is about seven weeks away on September 10, 2013. That’s still plenty of time to prepare to help raise public awareness about the importance of groundwater and water well stewardship for the health of the public and the environment.  To help you with this, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) has prepared some useful public awareness tools to help you promote Protect Your Groundwater Day in your state as follows:

  1. Print logo and Web logo for use on your web site and promotional materials.
  2. Sample News release.
  3. Poster and Flier to share with the public at your offices, during events, or through the mail.
  4. Video to link through emails and web sites.

Common ways in which promotional partners spread the word about PYGWD is through their Web sites, social media, newsletters, news releases, and events. You may adapt your messages to meet your specific groundwater priorities or simply use the tools and messages NGWA provides.

This page of our Protect Your Groundwater Day Web content lists all the federal, state and local organizations that have said “yes” to being a 2013 PYGWD promotional partner so far. If you confirmed that you want to be a 2013 partner and are not listed-or if you wish to become a promotional partner, please contact Cliff Treyens of NGWA at or 614-898-7791.
