Growing Groundwater Awareness

by Jane Griffin, Groundwater Foundation President

How appropriate that the first new program launched under new leadership at The Groundwater Foundation is titled "Growing Groundwater Awareness in Nebraska." Thanks to funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, the program is now underway.

As a person who has only recently come to truly appreciate groundwater I recognize the need to provide this critical information to the general public. I, like so many others, have always expected clean, safe drinking water to come out of the tap. I would just turn it on and not think any further about it.

Growing Groundwater Awareness in Nebraska is going to address that very issue. It will generate understanding of the role groundwater plays in our lives and the role we play (both as individuals and as communities) in protecting it for future generations.

Check back on our website for more information about the program and see what's happening in your community!

Let us know what you are already doing to protect groundwater! Or if you live in Nebraska and want us to bring educational activities to your community please contact us at
