Groundwater is the water found underground in the cracks and spaces in soil, sand and rock. It is stored in and moves slowly through geologic formations of soil, sand and rocks called aquifers. There’s no better time to think about the ways we can protect and conserve groundwater than in March during Groundwater Awareness Week.

  1. Go Native. 
  2. Reduce Chemical Use. 
  3. Manage Waste..
