It is a body of scientists and technicians with direct or indirect involvement or interest in the optimal development of the country's groundwater as a limited natural resource, and in the preservation of its quality. Environmental consciousness is strongly supported.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the promotion and protection of groundwater.
