The Groundwater Guardian Program is an international program sponsored by the Groundwater Foundation that supports, recognizes and connects communities working to protect groundwater. It is designed to empower local citizens and motivate communities to take voluntary steps toward protecting their groundwater resources. Through Groundwater Guardian, communities bring business, government, educators and citizens together to work on the common goal of groundwater protection.
The City of Kalamazoo has been designated a Groundwater Guardian Community every year since 1998. To receive this recognition, the City of Kalamazoo has demonstrated a continuing effort in groundwater protection by sharing its expertise and generating local solutions to effectively address local groundwater protection priorities.

All citizens of Kalamazoo County rely upon groundwater for their drinking water. Whether or not your home is connected to a municipal water supply or to a smaller well located on your property, you are drinking and otherwise using groundwater.
Stormwater is water from precipitation that flows across the ground and pavement when it rains or when snow and ice melt. The water seeps into the ground or drains into storm sewers through catch basins or inlets. The draining water is called stormwater runoff and is a concern to us since it can wash oil, grease, toxics, pathogens, sediment and other pollutants into storm sewers.
Protect Your Water runs radio ads and movie ads to educate those in the area and inspire action.
