ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to support member society National Ground Water Association’s Groundwater Week (December 3-6, 2018) with a new online resource pulling together AGI water science resources.
The new web page – Let’s Talk About Water – discusses the importance of groundwater science and highlights AGI water science resources dealing with education, workforce, policy, scholarly information issues, and more.
“Often we seek out the life-sustaining natural resource of water without much thought,” says AGI Executive Director Allyson Anderson Book. “But we consume water without worries only until a crisis threatens the availability of water or its safety. That’s where geoscientists come in.”
Groundwater Week sheds light on one of the world’s most important resources: groundwater. Groundwater is essential to the health and well-being of humanity and the environment, according to the National Ground Water Association.
