Our goal at American Aquifers is to protect our aquifers and to educate, support, and advocate for sustainable groundwater use through community outreach, data collection, scientific research, and to provide financial assistance for those struggling with groundwater issues.
We strive to be a resource for all those that depend on groundwater, including our communities, our families, and the environment.
American Aquifers is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Oregon, USA. At American Aquifers, we believe "EVERY DROP COUNTS". Although surface water is seen and felt, groundwater plays an equally important role in water resources. While the two vary greatly in volume, we are all intrinsically linked - when one is overdrawn, it drastically impacts the other - resulting in significant loss of water supply, damage to the environment, and other negative consequences. These implications reverberate throughout our habitats, throughout our communities, and impact our families. The better we understand groundwater resources, the more we can protect it, the better we can use it, and the greater it will benefit our environment and our families for generations to come.
