Protect Your Groundwater Day 2024

Every year, we ask our communities to promote and protect their groundwater supply and this year we are urging you to focus these efforts in your own backyard.

Ask yourself, when was the last time I tested my water? What actions have I taken to ensure my family’s water is safe and protected from contaminants?

Protect Your Groundwater Day serves as an annual reminder for water well owners to test, tend, and treat their private water systems. NGWA encourages annual inspections of private water systems by certified water well contractors to ensure systems are operating correctly and producing safe and healthy water.

At you can find information on testing your water well, maintaining your system and easily find a certified water well contractor in your area.

Today IS the day to take action and take the first step on to protecting your groundwater!
