National Ground Water Awareness Week is March 11 to 17. During the week, EPA and other organizations that are concerned about water resources will promote public awareness through various educational events and publications. Forty-four percent of America’s population regularly depends on ground water for its drinking water supply — reason enough to be ground water aware. Another reason is that ground water quantity and quality can strongly impact the environment.
