USGS Recognizes "Protect Your Groundwater Day,"
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) joins our partners in the groundwater community in recognizing September 10, 2...013, as Protect Your Groundwater Day because groundwater is important to all of us!

At the USGS, we observe and monitor groundwater conditions at locations across the United States. Our scientists work constantly to improve our understanding of how groundwater moves through the subsurface and what human and natural factors affect the quantity and quality of that groundwater. Using data collected by us and cooperating agencies along with software and other tools by our scientists, we predict long- and short-term changes to groundwater conditions as part of local and regional groundwater studies. We deliver the results of our observations, improved understanding, and predictions through journal articles, USGS reports, online databases, presentations at scientific meetings, and our websites.

These USGS tools, information, and data are used every day by water-resource managers, regulators, policy makers, well operators, and others to make decisions about how best to protect our groundwater to meet current and future needs.
