Download Environmental Engineering: Water, Wastewater, Soil and Groundwater Treatment and Remediation By Nelson w, Franklin J. Agardy, Patrick Sullivan, Joseph A. Salvato – As the global population grows and many developing countries modernize, the importance of water supply and water treatment becomes a much greater factor in the welfare of nations. This guide covers the quality assurance (QA) methods that may be used to assure the validity of data obtained during the sampling of a groundwater monitoring well. QA is any action taken to ensure that performance requirements are met by following standards and procedures. Following QA practices becomes even more critical if the data must be validated in a court of law. Groundwater Quality Research Every day, millions of gallons of groundwater are pumped to supply drinking water for about million people, almost one-half of the Nation’s population. Learn about the quality and availability of groundwater for drinking, where and why groundwater quality is degraded, and where groundwater quality is changing. Download Groundwater Hydrology By David Keith Todd, Larry W. Mays – Our understanding of the occurrence and movement of water under the Earth′s surface is constantly advancing, with new models, improved drilling equipment, new research, and refined techniques for managing this vital ding to these tremendous changes, David Todd and new coauthor Larry Mays equip .

Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management presents the best of current thinking on managing groundwater resources, focusing on the interrelationship between quantity and quality. Groundwater is an essential resource, yet it is subject to overuse and contamination both in the United States and abroad.
cal water quality parameters. Since most ground water is colorless, odorless, and without specific taste, we are typically most concerned with its chemical and biologi-cal qualities. Although spring water or groundwater products are often sold as “pure,” their water quality is different from that of pure by: Abstract.

Groundwater can become contaminated in many ways. If surface water that recharges an aquifer is polluted, the groundwater will also become contaminated. Contaminated groundwater can then affect the quality of surface water at discharge areas.
Groundwater can also become contaminated when liquid. Groundwater pollution is a worldwide issue. A study of the groundwater quality of the principal aquifers of the United States conducted between andshowed that 23% of domestic wells had contaminants at levels greater than human-health benchmarks.
Groundwater quality differs from place to place and this may therefore affect its suitability for consumption. For example, land-use has been found to affect the quality of groundwater [ 2 ]. Polluted groundwater resource may initiate water-borne diseases such as gastroenteritis, cholera, typhoid fever and giardiasis [ Cited by: 1.
