Administrative Fee Information

How Much Is the Fee?


When is the Fee Due?

The fee is due with a team's Annual Entry paperwork (by February 15 for Groundwater Guardians designated in the previous year; new Groundwater Guardians may enter at any time).

What Are the Payment Options?

Teams can pay the fee by cash, check, or credit card. Payment can also be submitted through the Foundation's online shop.

Can the Fee Be Paid with Groundwater Foundation Membership?

Use the online catalog to pay the administrative fee and become a Groundwater Foundation member with one payment, or use this form if needed for accounting purposes (the form should be included with a team’s Annual Entry Package). Note: Groundwater Foundation membership dues are tax deductible; the Groundwater Guardian administrative fee is not.
