Groundwater is one of our most valuable resources, even though we seldom think about it unless we live in very dry desert areas. There is supposedly water beneath our feet no matter where on earth we live. This ground water begins as rain and once it penetrates the surface, it continues moving to lower levels in the earth.

Vast amounts of water exist below our feet but it is only found in usable quantities in certain places called aquifers. There is supposedly an immense amount of water in aquifers, thousands of times more water than in the world’s rivers and lakes.
