September 10, 2013 is Protect Your Groundwater Day

Protect Your Groundwater Day (PYGWD) is September 10, 2013. There is plenty of time to spread the word and raise public awareness about the importance of protecting our precious groundwater and promote water well stewardship for the health of the public and the environment.  To help, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) has prepared some useful public awareness tools to help promote Protect Your Groundwater Day in your community:

  1. Print logo and Web logo for use on your web site and promotional materials.
  2. Sample News release. (2 pg WORD doc)
  3. Poster and Flier to share with the public
  4. Video to link through emails and web sites.

Adapt your messages to meet your specific groundwater priorities or simply use the tools and messages NGWA provides.
