Bannock County Groundwater

All citizens of Pocatello, Chubbuck, and North Bannock County rely upon groundwater as their only source of drinking water. Whether or not your home is connected to a municipal water system or to a private well located on your property, you are drinking groundwater. Our homes, businesses, industries, roads, and septic systems are located directly above our drinking water source, the Lower Portneuf Valley Aquifer. Therefore, preventing contamination of our groundwater guarantees the health of our community, our quality of life, and the long-term economic stability of the Lower Portneuf Valley.Help maintain our way of life through conservation, protection, and preservation of our valuable groundwater resource. It depends on each of us — business, industry, local governments, and individual citizens.
