Science Sunday: Groundwater Contamination

Did you know that only 0.3% of the world’s water supply is available for us to use? Only 0.3%! That’s not a lot. So it is very important for us to protect that water supply from becoming contaminated. How easily can groundwater get contaminated? And how can we prevent our groundwater from getting contaminated. Today, we are going to demonstrate how groundwater can get contaminated through lakes, septic systems, wells, and more. Watch the full Science Sunday segment to learn more.


Dinosaurs Around the World: Passport to Pangea is now open at the Connecticut Science Center and is included with General Admission. Visit CTScienceCenter.org to reserve your ticket online in advance of your visit.
