Here are eight simple ways to conserve groundwater at home

Groundwater is the hidden treasure under our feet. While groundwater is invisible, we can see its impact everywhere. Much of the freshwater we use for drinking, sanitation, food production and industrial processes comes from groundwater. It’s also an essential part of ecosystems, as it feeds springs, rivers, lakes and wetlands. Over-use, pollution and climate change all place strain on this incredibly vital resource. That’s why we must do our part to make sure everyone has access to clean, safe drinking water while balancing the needs of our planet. Together, we can protect this valuable treasure!
