After that carefully explain to them that if there is a major incident with the pipeline and contamination of an aquifer, they will be flown to the site of the leak, and they will be drinking more water.

The problem with aquifers is they can have sand stringers - even in dense and nearly impervious clay soils - that can send petroleum miles away from the source.
I've seen it occur on LUST sites on occasions to numerous to get into.
My point being, most think of a spill as confined to the area that it occurred, while nothing could be further from the truth.
The exec gets to drink the water, but so do families, dairy cows, birds...the food chain. Extreme care and planning are necessary as opposed to what went on with BP and Haliburton rubbing legs in the Gulf.

All our underground water should be protected because I believe once we pollute the above ground water beyond reclamation, we will have no other choice.

Honestly industry wants to do the deal as cheaply as possible to make a profit. This policy of lowest bidder gets the contract is BS.
Put the money where the mouth is. If you are truly concerned about innovation in keeping these things safe the lowest bidder will not be offering up such.
A balance must be struck.
