Dr. Jasim explained the important role that groundwater plays in our everyday lives and how climate change will continue to have serious implications on our groundwater supply. We may have more groundwater than we realize since we don't always know what's under our feet. Appropriately this year's theme is, "MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE" because we could be failing to harness a potentially vital water resources.
There are a few big threats to our water supply which include, climate change, our growing population and pollution.
