Groundwater as a resource. Brochure on groundwater protection in Europe (pdf ~1,5Mb) Groundwater constitutes the largest reservoir of freshwater in the world, accounting for over 97% of all freshwaters available on earth (excluding glaciers and ice caps).

Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into type of water pollution can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution.

Sources of groundwater pollution. Because it is mixed and circulated over a large area, groundwater is relatively clean, but the increased population and industrialization of the twentieth century has led to serious groundwater contamination problems in many parts of the country.

Groundwater Protection in Europe and in the United States. In the European Union, early groundwater protection focused at controlling emissions of substances from industrial and urban sources (Directive 80/68/EEC).

However, control of diffuse pollution from agricultural and industrial sources was considered later (e.g., the Nitrates Directive. `the book will undoubtedly prove to be valuable asset to anyone using groundwater models or making decisions based on such models.'

An International Working Group concerned with aspects of environmental pollution due to low-cost sanitation proposed in that rigorous long term studies.

This chapter presents six case studies of uses of different methods to assess ground water vulnerability to contamination. These case examples demonstrate the wide range of applications for which ground water vulnerability assessments are being conducted in the United States.

While each application. Groundwater contamination occurs when man-made products such as gasoline, oil, road salts and chemicals get into the groundwater and cause it to become unsafe and unfit for human use. Materials from the land's surface can move through the soil and end up in the groundwater.

He previously worked for an international firm of consulting engineers, carrying out groundwater development projects in many countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. His current research interests include groundwater pollution, aquifer recharge and groundwater engineering.

Humans often use aquifers as a means to obtain drinking water, and build wells to access it. When this water becomes polluted it is called groundwater pollution.

Groundwater pollution is often caused by pesticide contamination from the soil, this can infect our drinking water and cause huge problems.
