Carbon County has been named a 2012 Groundwater Guardian Community

This is the 13th year the local county has received achievement

Carbon County has been named a 2012 Groundwater Guardian Community by The Groundwater Foundation of Lincoln, Neb. in recognition of its efforts to protect local groundwater supplies.

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.

Carbon County has been designated as a Groundwater Guardian for 13 years.

“I’m so proud to recognize Carbon County as a 2012 Groundwater Guardian,” says Groundwater Guardian director Jennifer Wenhoff. “Groundwater Guardians like Carbon County are taking steps to educate people and protect the precious resource of groundwater in their communities, and we are thrilled to honor their achievements.”

During 2012, Carbon County implemented a variety of activities. The team:

Ÿ Continued to update and expand a website featuring local groundwater information and online resources. This team also maintains a Facebook page to further educate the community.

Ÿ Provided a homeowner’s well water testing program. Private well owners fill out a short questionnaire about their well, and recommendations are made as to what testing should be performed, eliminating unnecessary tests.

Ÿ Collected and post precipitation data on the team’s website from eight active monitoring stations in the county. The data is shared with a variety of agencies and organizations as part of various collaborative volunteer networks.

Groundwater Foundation President Jane Griffin stated, “Our Groundwater Guardians embody The Groundwater Foundation’s mission to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations. We’re so grateful for their commitment to groundwater protection.”
