The campaign was funded by a Wellhead Protection Grant, which was received from the Water Resources Division of the Department of Environmental Quality.The sixth and ninth grade science classes were selected to receive the educational material. They received The JUG: Just Understanding Groundwater kit, a lesson plan, a diagram of the groundwater system and a Chesapeake Bay fact sheet for distribution. Those materials are available below.
