In recognition of efforts to protect local groundwater supplies, Buhl Community Water has been named a 2017 Groundwater Guardian by The Groundwater Foundation, a national nonprofit organization based in Lincoln, Neb. with the mission to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations.
Groundwater Guardian is a unique, locally driven program that brings diverse sectors of a community, including business, government, educators, and citizens,together to work toward protecting a community's groundwater resources. Groundwater Guardians form teams that implement activities to address local groundwater concerns and issues.
"It is through the efforts of strong local teams that our 68 Groundwater Guardian teams are able to educate people and protect groundwater in 23 states across the country," says Groundwater Guardian Program Manager Sara Brock.
2017 was a very successful year for the Buhl Community Water Groundwater Guardian team. The team has received their designation for the 15th year by continuing local groundwater education and outreach efforts in the wellhead protection area through providing disposal options for potential contaminants.
