The Groundwater Festival Program had its beginnings in the late 80’s in Nebraska where a sixth grade class traveled to the state’s capitol Lincoln to attend a symposium on groundwater. According to the Groundwater Foundation, Groundwater Festivals have been held in 40 states, Mexico City, several provinces in Canada and New Delhi, India.

The Program was introduced to Alabama in 1997 by Dr. Enid Probst, Wellhead Program Coordinator for the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (Retired). Since then thousands of fourth grade students in over 25 counties have participated in the Groundwater Festival Program.
