Snow Making – Aspen, Colorado. Water is needed for hundreds of different uses throughout the world.
Old Wind Pumps (and one modern wind turbine) – Lubbock, Texas. Today, electric turbine pumps move billions of gallons from aquifers to productive use.
Groundwater Clean-up – Birmingham, Alabama. New technologies are working at hundreds of old industrial sites to restore aquifer integrity.
Spray Irrigation – Central Valley, California. Agriculture accounts for 70% of all water use in the U.S.
Threats to Groundwater: Crop Spraying - What we spread on the surface can impact surface water quality and groundwater.
Rocks impact groundwater chemistry. Picture shows igneous dolerite, sedimentary mudstone and a thin metamorphic layer.

Supporters of Our Mission

HYDRAULIC FRACTURING

The AGWT is in favor of developing energy resources provided water resources are not jeopadized. Our Shale-gas programs in Texas (2012 and 2013), North Carolina (2012), Massachusetts (2012) and California (2013) have provided balanced information, and facilitated information exchange to help reduce angst and conflict among all parties interested in, and affected by, the development of natural gas.
