How do we protect aquifers and keep groundwater flowing?

We’ve been pumping water from aquifers for thousands of years. Yet as technology improves and population continues to grow, our ability to pump more water - faster - increases, and so does our need for it, yet our ability to properly monitor it is still heavily lacking.

 

A cycle exists which prevents stability for those that rely on groundwater for survival.

At American Aquifers, we believe the better we understand groundwater resources, the more we can protect it, the better we can use it, and the greater it will benefit our environment and our families for generations to come.
