Learn How You and Your Community Can Protect Groundwater

By Cindy Kreifels, The Groundwater Foundation

The Groundwater Foundation began in 1985 with enthusiasm and passion for groundwater.  Now 30 years later, the Foundation celebrates this milestone by looking to the future:  it truly is just the beginning. 

Groundwater is perhaps an even more critical resource now than three decades ago.  Increased demand for groundwater for drinking water, agriculture, and industry, along with ever-changing threats from contamination, puts groundwater at an important juncture – one that necessitates action by each and every one of us.   

The 2015 Groundwater Foundation National Conference will serve as a call to action on behalf of groundwater.  The future is upon us, and action is needed to identify challenges and develop approaches and solutions to address them.  From climate change and growing societal needs to a wide variety of emerging contaminants, each of us will need to be prepared to prevent and mitigate the potential risks to this precious resource. 

Through knowledgeable speakers, educational workshops, and unique tours, conference participants will find tools and experiences to help them take action to protect groundwater in their communities.
