National Ground Water Awareness Week
BISMARCK, N.D. – In recognition of National Ground Water Awareness Week March 13 through 19, 2005, the North Dakota Department of Health is providing a package of information for use by news media throughout the state.
In North Dakota, protecting ground water is one of the primary functions of the department’s Division of Water Quality. “It may not always be visible, but ground water is the source of half the drinking water supplies in the United States,” said Scott Radig, Ground Water Protection Program manager for the Department of Health. “Even though it is out of sight, ground water should not be far out of mind.”
Included in the package of information for the media are five articles and a fact sheet about ground water. The articles include:
The ground water articles may be accessed at www.health.state.nd.us/WQ/GW/AwarenessWeek/. For more information about ground water issues, contact Scott Radig at 701.328.5233.
