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.

HYDRAULIC FRACTURING

The protection of water resources must be a priority when energy resources are developed using directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing. The AGWT education conference programs on “fracking” (7 completed) and staff presentations (23) provide balanced information, and facilitated information exchange opportunities. Everybody is entitled to an opinion – opinion should be based on facts – nobody is entitled to their own facts.  Click here for more information......
