This special issue can be accessed in the Wiley Online Library , the database containing complete content information for Groundwater, the leading international journal focusing exclusively on ground water now in its 52nd year.


The
issue builds from a core of U.S. Geological Survey research through the
National Water Quality Assessment Program. Management of public water
supply has become more aggressive to meet the public’s growing awareness
of water quality – and quantity – issues. As aquifers are being
depleted, the impact to drinking water sources is pertinent to water
supply sustainability.


“I
am very excited about this special electronic issue regarding the
vulnerability of our ground water resource as it relates to drinking
water production,” said Groundwater editor-in-chief
Henk Haitjema, PhD, in a news release. “It provides a wealth of information and
analyses of great value to all those active in the management of our
public drinking water supply.”


The
original USGS research papers in the special issue are supplemented
with an issue paper, a number of additional research papers, and a case
study all with topics important to scientists and engineers tasked with
assessing and protecting groundwater-based water supply wells.


Since 1963, Groundwater
has published papers on topics related to groundwater
including ground water flow and well hydraulics, hydrogeochemistry and
contaminant hydrogeology, application of geophysics, ground water
management and policy, and history of ground water hydrology.
