National Ground Water Awareness Week, March 6-11, 2011

 

It is National Ground Water Awareness Week!  The unique geology of the Ozarks creates highly connected bedrock passages for surface water to interact with groundwater.  Pollutants released near the surface could potentially end up in our groundwater.  If you have a private drinking water well you should have it tested once a year. To learn more about how you can protect groundwater visit, http://water.epa.gov/type/groundwater/awarenessweek.cfm  or for information on how to test your private drinking water well in Greene County visit, http://www.springfieldmo.gov/health/waterlab.html
