Membership FAQ

  1. Why Is Protecting Groundwater So Important?

    Groundwater is hidden from view and as a result most of us simply take it for granted. But when we turn on a faucet, half of us get groundwater. It's important that our drinking water is safe and healthy for us and for our families.

  2. Can the Quality of Groundwater Affect My Health and the Health of My Family?

    Absolutely! Maintaining groundwater quality is key to maintaining our health and the health of the environment. The Groundwater Foundation helps protect you and your family's health by educating individuals about the practices that keep contaminants out of drinking water, and by helping people take action to protect groundwater locally.

  3. Can Groundwater Be Contaminated?

    Unfortunately, groundwater contamination can and does happen. Carelessly discarded motor oil, pesticides, industrial solvents, commonly used lawn and home chemicals can move downward through the soil, causing contamination. Cleanup may not be possible, and if it is, groundwater restoration almost always carries a huge price tag. It’s much safer and easier to protect groundwater in the first place, and it starts with educating people about it.
