    Everyone can and should do something to protect groundwater. Why? We all have a stake in maintaining its quality and quantity.

    · For starters, 99 percent of all available freshwater comes from aquifers underground. Being a good steward of groundwater just makes sense.

    · Not only that, most surface water bodies are connected to groundwater so how you impact groundwater matters.

    · Furthermore, many public water systems draw all or part of their supply from groundwater, so protecting the resource protects the public water supply and impacts treatment costs.

    · If you own a well to provide water for your family, farm, or business, groundwater protection is doubly important. As a well owner, you are the manager of your own water system. Protecting groundwater will help reduce risks to your water supply.
