Imperial recognized for 16th year as a Groundwater Guardian PDF Print E-mail

Imperial has been named a 2010 Groundwater Guardian Community by The Groundwater Foundation of Lincoln, in recognition of its efforts to protect local groundwater supplies.
Imperial is among 132 communities in 34 states and one Canadian province to receive this designation.
Groundwater Guardian is a program of The Groundwater Foundation which encourages and recognizes local groundwater protection and education activities. Groundwater Guardians form teams of local stakeholders that implement activities to address local groundwater concerns and issues, which range from water festivals and pharmaceutical take back programs to rain garden installations and wellhead protection activities.
Imperial has been designated as a Groundwater Guardian for 16 years.
“Communities like Imperial live up to their designation of a ‘Groundwater Guardian,’” says Groundwater Guardian Director Jennifer Wemhoff. “We say at The Groundwater Foundation that ‘It is because of people that groundwater must be protected, but it is only through the efforts of people that it can be accomplished.’ We are proud to recognize the work of people like the Imperial Groundwater Guardian team for their efforts.”
The Groundwater Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations.
Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has developed programs, projects and resources that have educated youth and adults about the importance of groundwater and ways they can help protect it.
The Groundwater Guardian program is supported by the U.S. Geological Survey.
