    The book describes the excess supply of nutrients and manure to agricultural lands and the resulting problems of groundwater contamination and surface water eutrophication. It reviews these practices in the main EU countries and in North America and proposes a new sustainable approach for dealing with this environmental deterioration.

Groundwater Contamination. Most groundwater contamination originates at the land surface and is classified as either point source, for example from spills or an industrial site, or non-point source, for example from agriculture-related compounds.

Probably the. Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into esteindesign.xyz 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.

Groundwater Science, Second Edition — winner of a Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The Text and Academic Authors Association — covers groundwater's role in the hydrologic cycle and in water supply, contamination, and construction issues.

It is a valuable resource for students and instructors in the geosciences (with focuses in hydrology, hydrogeology, and environmental science. 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. Apr 06,  · Ground Water Contamination: Transport and Remediation (2nd Edition) [Philip B. Bedient, Hanadi S. Rifai, Charles J. Newell] on esteindesign.xyz *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Cherry, University of Waterloo/5(13). for contamination increases because water from the zone of contribution, a land area larger than the original recharge area, is drawn into the well and the surrounding aquifer. Some drinking water wells actually draw water from nearby streams, lakes, or rivers.

Contaminants present in these surface waters can contribute contamination to. water pollution, contamination of water resources by harmful wastes; see also sewerage, water supply, pollution, and environmentalism. Industrial Pollution In the United States industry is the greatest source of pollution, accounting for more than half the volume of all water pollution and.
