Groundwater knows physical boundaries and hydrogeologic conditions. Other boundaries, like political districts and property boundaries are simply invisible to groundwater. So, how can we effectively manage a groundwater resource in the world we live?
Whenever we try to manage groundwater exclusively from our own corner of the world, we sidestep success in the aquifer by building unintended dysfunction in behavior between our neighbors and ourselves. Independent decision making alone builds a tragedy of the commons. Today’s challenge is to manage groundwater basins by working together. Operation Unite® brings people together to solve water problems. We can make your job easier. Let us help!
