ground water awareness no date

Ground Water Canada wants to help you communicate with well owners. That's why we are highlighting water well education during National Ground Water Awareness Week in Canada!
 
We mark this special week together with the U.S. National Ground Water Association to focus on the importance of ground water as a resource and stress the need for yearly water testing and well maintenance.
 
This page will serve as a hub to help foster awareness among well drillers, the well owners you serve and the general public.

You will find:
  • stories featuring contractors interacting with water well owners and the public
  • technical articles on water quality and well construction from knowledgeable drillers and scientists
  • fact sheets you can share with well owners
  • useful templates to help you educate and be a go-to resource for the public
  • helpful links, and more!
Take a moment to browse or search ground water topics and share these resources with your customers and your community!
