The Groundwater Foundation began in 1985 with enthusiasm and passion for groundwater. Now, 30 years later, the Foundation celebrates this milestone by looking to the future: it truly is just the beginning.
Groundwater is perhaps an even more critical resource now than three decades ago. Increased demand for groundwater for drinking water, agriculture, and industry, along with ever-changing threats from contamination, puts groundwater at an important juncture - one that necessitates action by each and every one of us.
The Groundwater Foundation has celebrated its 30th anniversary throughout 2015, culminating with a celebration as part of the 2015 National Conference.
