The Mission of the American Ground Water Trust is to:
~ Communicate the environmental and economic value of groundwater
~ Promote efficient and effective groundwater management
~ Showcase groundwater science and technology solutions
~ Increase citizen, community and decision-maker awareness
~ Facilitate stakeholder participation in water resource decisions
The integrity of AGWT information and the effectiveness of our groundwater awareness programs are the foundation of our partnerships with local, state and national organizations and agencies. The AGWT brings stakeholders together to encourage open discussion about practical ways to develop, manage and protect groundwater resources so that sustainable economic and environmental benefits can be optimized.
More than 150 million people in the United States rely on groundwater for their drinking water. By the year 2050, there will be 100 million more people living in America . In addition to being a vital source for drinking water, groundwater plays a crucial role for American agriculture, mining and manufacturing industries. Each one of us has a role and a responsibility when it comes to ensuring that groundwater resources will be available for future generations. Invest in the future by supporting our education programs via membership, sponsorship and/or participation, so that we can achieve our mission and ensure that water sources are protected and that science is the basis for local, state and national water policy.
