Protect Your Groundwater Day is Sept. 3

August 21, 2019  By Ground Water Canada

September 3 is Protect Your Groundwater Day! The annual observance was established by the National Ground Water Association to highlight the responsible development, management and use of ground water. 

It is also a platform to encourage yearly water well testing and well maintenance.

In the weeks leading up to Protect Your Groundwater Day (PYGWD), NGWA encourages everyone to become official “groundwater protectors” by taking steps to conserve and protect the resource.


Businesses, individuals, educators, students, federal agencies, cities, associations, and everyone in between can ask to be added to the NGWA’s ground water protector list through the association’s website or on social media.

If you have an interesting story to tell about ground water, share it with the NGWA and Ground Water Canada and we may highlight your efforts.

Most importantly, share your stories with your local media and communities! (Here is a press release template you can customize.)

August is also National Water Quality Month, providing an additional opportunity to get educated and spread the good word about protecting ground water.
