The United States Environmental Protection Agency Ground Water and Drinking Water website reminds us that the National Ground Water Awareness Week is March 9-15, 2008. The site also offers important educational and research information.

The Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW), together with states, tribes, and its many partners, protects public health by ensuring safe drinking water and protecting ground water. OGWDW, along with EPA’s ten regional drinking water programs, oversees implementation of the Safe Drinking Water Act, which is the national law safeguarding tap water in America.
