53% of Americans drink ground water. In Michigan, we have more public ground water supply systems than any other state, as well as more private household wells, so there's a good chance the water you drink comes from underground. This module will explore the different types of ground water, as well as examining its behavior, origins, and destinations.

Topics covered in this module:

  • The importance of ground water
  • Aquifers
  • Soil properties and their influence on aquifer characteristics
  • Where ground water comes from
  • Where ground water goes
  • How we obtain ground water
  • Current events related to ground water
  • Ground water use where you live
