Here’s the webpage from the National Ground Water Association:

Now well into its second decade, Groundwater Awareness Week spotlights one of the world’s most important resources — groundwater.

Who should be “aware” of groundwater? Quite simply, everyone.

Groundwater is essential to the health and well-being of humanity and the environment. Whether you’re on a public water system or a private well, whether you are a health care official, policymaker, regulator, an environmentalist or a groundwater professional, you can get involved in protecting this vital resource.

You can find more information on groundwater and water well stewardship by going to NGWA’s Web site for well owners, www.wellowner.org.

Here’s the link to the USGS Groundwater webpage. Here’s a link to the USGS publication What is Groundwater?.
