The Groundwater Project

Online Platform for Groundwater Knowledge

Groundwater Learning Free of Charge

Online books for a broad readership

Our Mission

The mission of The Groundwater Project is to provide accessible, engaging, high-quality, educational materials, free-of-charge online in many languages, to all who want to learn about groundwater and understand how groundwater relates to and sustains ecological systems and humanity. Our current effort is focused on producing online books that have undergone rigorous reviews and editing.

Books for You

As of mid-2020, over 300 groundwater professionals from academia, industry, and government are writing over 200 books in support of The Groundwater Project’s mission. About a dozen books will be released by the end of 2020, and another 40 by the end of 2021. While the books are free for you to download, we ask you to register as users and not distribute your books to others. Please review our Terms of Use.

Support Us

While a vast amount of our work is done by volunteers, funds are needed for book production, professional editing, website maintenance, administrative support, and occasional travel to communicate with and seek new participants. Your financial support will help us produce the highest quality learning materials for the world.
