Learn and share with others who share a passion for groundwater protection and conservation!

The Groundwater Foundation, in partnership with the Southern Nevada Water Authority, is hosting a one-day forum on October 7, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in conjunction with the Water Smart Innovations Conference, to provide opportunities for idea sharing and collaboration around the idea of community-based groundwater protection.

The forum will feature veterans of successful groundwater protection and conservation efforts who will share their experiences and the keys to their success. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their community's situation and efforts, learning from others and gleaning new ideas and approaches.

"Any agencies or community leaders who rely on groundwater should strongly consider participating in this event. To have this level of knowledge and commitment assembled in one place is rare, and it is an opportunity that shouldn't be missed."

"As water scarcity becomes an increasing concern - even here in the United States, where we have a tendency to take things for granted - community-based groundwater protection is going to play an increasingly important role in sustaining a safe, reliable water supply."
--Andrew Belanger, Director of Public Services, SNWA


"Regardless of what state or federal policies are in place, the responsibility for protecting a community's groundwater supply ultimately rests with the community itself." 
-- Andrew Belanger, Director of Public Services, SNWA
