As a resource that is hidden from view, groundwater is quite often overlooked. Can we afford to forget or overlook this precious and vital resource as we move toward the betterment of our environment?

Over 50 percent of Americans rely on groundwater as a source of drinking water. Industry, agriculture, and recreation also rely on groundwater to help their businesses thrive. Being good stewards of groundwater is something everyone can do in their daily lives, whether it’s protecting a well, using water efficiently, managing fertilizer and pesticide use, or controlling runoff.

The 2008 National Conference will examine the importance of including groundwater in green efforts, opportunities for green groundwater actions, and how to share the green message in our communities. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what you, your community, and your business can do to protect groundwater for generations to come.

The conference will provide information on “green” programs such as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building program, Groundwater Guardian Green Sites, and the US EPA Water Sense program. Other conference topics such as gray water reuse, landscape technologies, stormwater management, pollution prevention, and take-back programs will help citizens understand their individual responsibility to groundwater protection.

The conference will also provide case studies of businesses, industries, and communities working toward a greener world. Another important aspect of “green” stewardship to be explored at the conference is communication. Presentations will address sharing information with the broader community, the importance of accurate environmental messages, media challenges and potential solutions, and the best ways to effect human behavior change.

Special events held in conjunction with the conference include a “Meet the New Groundwater Foundation President” opening reception, and the Groundwater Guardian Designation Ceremony during which communities participating in the Foundation’s Groundwater Guardian program and “green” spaces participating in the Groundwater Guardian Green Sites program will be recognized for their efforts on behalf of groundwater.

Join The Groundwater Foundation in Southern California this November to explore groundwater and the greening of America one person and one community at a time.

The 2008 National Groundwater Guardian Conference is co-sponsored by The Groundwater Foundation and the Awwa Research Foundation. Additional support provided by United States Geological Survey and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
