Approximately half of all Americans depend on ground water for household water use. Many agricultural and industrial activities also depend heavily on ground water supplies. Given the importance of ground water for the nation, a basic understanding of the principles of ground-water protection is necessary for engineers involved in governmental and industrial actions affecting ground water. The present course introduces the sources of ground water, lists its primary uses, discusses the many possible sources of contamination, explains options available after contamination has occurred, and outlines how federal and state laws are used to protect ground water.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
