The National Groundwater Association has announced the dates for the 15th annual National Groundwater Awareness Week.
The group says the event, set for March 10-16, give ground water industry professionals an opportunity to educate the public about water access, quality and stewardship.
“Every groundwater professional, company, or organization should seize this opportunity to showcase ground water as the enormously important resource that it is,” said Cliff Treyen, NGWA’s public awareness director. “In the process, those who promote groundwater will have an excellent opportunity to showcase their companies.”
