The National Ground Water Association today joined CEOs and 252 organizations in signing “Innovation: An American Imperative,” a document aimed at urging stronger federal policies and investment to drive domestic research and development.

“NGWA’s mission is to advance groundwater knowledge. Key to furthering our mission is support of national policies and investment that fuel basic research and development,” said NGWA CEO Kevin McCray, CAE. “Science undergirds everything that groundwater professionals do. As challenges to our groundwater resources grow, so, too, should our nation’s investment in the kind of research and development that will enable us to meet those challenges.”
