Summary, Conclusions, And Implications For Ground‐Water Management. The occurrence of one or more VOCs in 51% of the samples analyzed using an assessment level of μg/l demonstrates the vulnerability of many of the aquifers used for drinking‐water supply in the United States to low‐level contamination by by: In a national study of groundwater quality, the USGS found that arsenic was detected in nearly half of the wells sampled in parts of aquifers used for drinking-water supply at a concentration of 1 µg/L or greater.

Detections were more common and concentrations generally were higher in the west than in the east. About 7 percent of the wells sampled contained arsenic at a.

The first phase of intensive data collection for the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) was completed during − in 20 major hydrologic basins of the United States. Groundwater land-use studies, designed to sample recently recharged groundwater (generally within 10 years) beneath specific land-use and hydrogeologic settings, are a major component.

Interest in arsenic in ground water has greatly increased in the past decade because of the increased awareness of human health effects and the costs of avoidance or treatment of ground water supplies used for consumption.

The goal of this book is. Chemical data from more than ground-water sites in the Middle Rio Grande Basin of central New Mexico indicate that arsenic concentrations exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency drinking-water standard of 10 micrograms per liter across broad areas of the Santa Fe Group aquifer system, which is currently the almost exclusive source of drinking-water supply Cited by: Groundwater extraction for irrigation in areas such as South Asia and the high plains of the United States has depleted aquifer systems (Wada et al., ).Groundwater extraction is considered sustainable if there is no net reduction in groundwater stored in the system over a water year (Bredehoeft, ).Extraction of groundwater from an unexploited aquifer alters the balance.

The Occurrence of Subsurface Water The subsurface occurrence of groundwater may be divided into zones of aeration and saturation. The zone of aeration consists of interstices occupied partially by water and partially by air. In the zone of saturation all interstices are filled with water, under hydrostatic pressure.

Ground water constitute an integral part of the human's life and now time demands to bring it to use so that we can fulfill our fast growing demand of water.

Following are the different types of ground water reservoirs and the their details. Subsurface Water Occurrence. Underground rivers occur only rarely in cavernous limestone.

As the population and demand for safe drinking water from domestic wells increase, it is important to examine water quality and contaminant occurrence. A national assessment in by the U.S. Geological Survey reported findings for 55 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) based on 2, domestic wells sampled during –Cited by: Pesticides are chemicals designed to kill pests, including insects (insecticides), weeds (herbicides), and fungi (fungicides).

The USGS assesses the occurrence and behavior of pesticides in streams, lakes, and groundwater and the potential for pesticides to contaminate our drinking-water supplies or harm aquatic ecosystems.

Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently investigated 51 streams in nine Midwestern States to determine the presence of a wide range of herbicides, their degradation byproducts and antibiotics.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the American Water Works Association Research Foundation (AWWARF) have been collaborating in an ongoing study to research the application of molecular biology techniques versus conventional techniques for monitoring and consequently to obtain ground water microbial occurrence data.

A ground-water reconnaissance involving more than wells across the Midwestern United States that showed degradates of herbicides were more commonly found than the parent compounds. Tracking the transport of triazines through drinking-water reservoirs; results showed herbicide concentrations remaining high throughout most of the year in.

The use value of ground water depends fundamentally on the costs of producing or obtaining the water and its value in the uses to which it is ultimately put. The costs of producing ground water typically include the costs of extraction and delivery as well as the opportunity cost of.

The principal aquifers of the US are identified and described in the “Ground Water Atlas of the United States” (Miller ) and shown on a two-dimensional (2D) map representation (Fig. 1; USGS ).

The identification of these principal aquifers affords a broad understanding of where water-bearing formations are in the US and provides a Cited by: 7. A total of raw-water samples (before treatment) were collected from 15 principal and other major aquifer systems (PAs) used for drinking water in 45 states in all major physiographic provinces of the USA and analyzed for concentrations of the Ra isotopes Ra, Ra and Ra establishing the framework for evaluating Ra occurrence.

3 About a quarter of all U.S. rainfall becomes groundwater. Groundwater provides much of the flow of many streams; many lakes and streams are.

The U.S. Geological Survey established the Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (RASA) program to evaluate major interconnected aquifers or groups of aquifers that share similar characteristics within a region.

One of the objectives of the Northeastern Glacial RASA is to provide information on the occurrence and quality of ground water in glacial deposits in ten States: Maine, New.

7 The Occurrence of Subsurface Water The subsurface occurrence of groundwater may be divided into zones of aeration and saturation.

The zone of aeration consists of interstices occupied partially by water and partially by air. In the zone of saturation all interstices are filled with water, under hydrostatic pressure. In addition, TWRI Book 1, Chapter D2, describes guidelines for the collection and field analysis of ground-water samples for selected unstable constituents.

Procedures for onsite measurements and for collecting, treating, and shipping samples are given in TWRIs Book 1, Chapter D2; Book 3, Chapters A1, A3, and A4; and Book 9, Chapters A1 through A9. Oscar Edward Meinzer (Novem – J ) was an American hydrogeologist who has been called the "father of modern groundwater hydrology".

He was awarded the William Bowie Medal in The O. Meinzer award is named for him. He collaborated with Norah Dowell Stearns, one of the first women hydrogeologists. Selected works — ().
