World Water Day - March 22, 2022

WWD 2022

The 2022 theme of World Water Day is Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible

Groundwater is invisible, but its impact is visible everywhere.  Out of site, under our feet, groundwater is a hidden treasure that enriches our lives.  Almost all of the liquid freshwater in the world is groundwater.  As climate change gets worse, groundwater will become more and more critical.  We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource.  Groundwater may be out of sight, but it must not be out of mind.
