There are three general objectives that this slide presentation concentrates on; First of all, we want to acquaint you with the hydrologic cycle. If one understands this cycle; then, an appreciation for what activities might contaminate our water supplies can be obtained. Secondly, we want to review some of the land use practices that may result in water resource contamination. Thirdly, we want to review well construction and maintenance practices that may result in contamination of an individuals source of drinking water. That brings us to the major goal of this entire program. This major goal is to get each person to think about protecting his source of groundwater supply from contamination, whether that source be a well or a spring. If each person protects his own groundwater supply, then the regional groundwater supply will be protected and available for future use.
