2020 Ground Water Awareness Week in Canada 

Although ground water is such an important resources that we should be thinking about it all year long, special attention is paid during Ground Water Awareness Week, March 9 to 13, 2020.  Approximately 30% of the population of Ontario relies on ground water from municipal or private supplies for their drinking water.  Large and small municipalities and rural landowners require a clean, sustainable source.  A Canadian reference on ground water can be found here.

Articles supporting the Ground Water Awareness Week can be accessed on the Ground Water Canada website.

Check out these websites, in addition to this local website, to learn how you can help protect our ground water resources.
