  EPA's Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water. Lead in Drinking Water. Janu - EPA initiates a peer review of draft scientific modeling approaches to inform EPA’s evaluation of potential health-based benchmarks for lead in drinking more. January 5, - EPA releases a proposed regulation for Implementing Section of the Safe Drinking Water Act. A new reference book called The Art of Water Wells by registered professional geologist Marvin F. Glotfelty provides a comprehensive overview of well systems for everyone working in the ground water field.. The book, which provides practical information on water wells, including site selection, design, drilling methods and economics­, is written in a fashion that is understandable.

Groundwater has been a major source of agricultural, municipal, and domestic water supply since the early s in the Coachella Valley, California, USA. Land subsidence, resulting from aquifer-system compaction and groundwater-level declines, has been a concern of the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) since the mids. As a result, the. : Groundwater and Wells () and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices.4/5(3).

Unsaturated Zone Hydrology for Scientists and Engineers The first edition of this book was published by Prentice Hall in It has been widely recognized as one of the finest books in the field of unsaturated zone hydrology for upper division and graduate level courses, as . The book introduces to the reader all aspects of ground water i.e., its assessment, development, utilisation and management. Practical application of different formulae for field conditions, data collection and processing, test procedures and principles of design are worked out to illustrate the theory and design procedure.

This document does not focus on specific regulatory requirements, but instead presents. The saturated zone beneath the water table is recharged by the excess water that is not discharged to streams. The resulting rise in the water table increases ground-water storage (the volume of ground water stored within an aquifer system).

In late spring, summer, and early fall, evaporation and transpiration by plants capture most of the water that would otherwise recharge the aquifer, while.The water quality criteria to use for drinking water wells are the applicable local or state drinking water quality standards.

For irrigation wells, the prima ry chemical parameters of concern a e salinity and bo on and the sodium-adsorption ratio. Enough ground water must be available to meet the pumping requirements of the wells.A well can easily be contaminated if it is not properly constructed or if toxic materials are released into the well.

Toxic material spilled or dumped near a well can leach into the aquifer and contaminate the groundwater drawn from that well. Contaminated wells used for drinking water are especially dangerous.
