Clean, Abundant Groundwater: Good for People, Agriculture, & the Environment

Groundwater is the largest supply of freshwater on earth, and the biggest source of drinking water for the U.S. Protecting groundwater is both an important public health and environmental issue and concern. By understanding how we impact this resource and following simple practices, we all can be better stewards of our groundwater.
