Like the Olympic gold medal, groundwater is our precious prize that we need to protect and conserve everyday of our lives. It’s the water we drink, it grows the food on our table and it nourishes our communities. Individuals can do several things to protect and conserve groundwater:
1) Take short showers.
2) Check for leaky faucets.3) Shut off water while brushing teeth.
4) Dispose of chemicals properly.
5) Limit the amount of fertilizer used on plants.
