Ground Water Canada wants to help you communicate with well owners and the public. That's why we are highlighting water well education during National Ground Water Awareness Week in Canada!

We mark this special week 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 all year long 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
  • podcasts and fact sheets you can share with well owners and the public
  • useful templates to help you educate and be a go-to resource for the public
  • helpful links, and more!

Browse or search ground water topics and share these resources with your customers and your community to show them the role you play as a ground water professional!
