MONROE - Groundwater is the water that soaks into the soil from rain or other precipitation and moves downward to fill cracks and other openings in beds of rocks and sand. It is, therefore, a renewable resource, although renewal rates vary greatly according to environmental conditions.It also is an abundant natural resource. Of all the freshwater in the world (excluding polar ice caps), 95 percent is groundwater.
