Pollution Sources Enter Water Sources

Water Found Underground!

(Source water is where drinking water starts in nature!) Water found underground is a source of fresh water for people to drink and use. We don't want to contaminate our fresh water with pollution, because it can make us and our animals sick, and harm our crops and local wildlife. Communities can pollute ground water, and we can help protect it!
