Two men, Mr. Frank Waksmunski and Mr. Leroy Skinner, who had many questions but not all the answers, formed the Groundwater Guardians in 1999.

The first thing we did was meet with Susan Gallagher, Chief Naturalist at the Carbon County Environmental Education Center. Many ideas were discussed and a general framework for this new organization was put together.
