@article{osti_, title = {Planning for groundwater protection}, author = {Page, G W}, abstractNote = {This book describes selected growndwater contamination problems and the best available approaches for protecting groundwater with a focus on programs designed to protect public water supplies.

It provides the reader with an understanding of contamination processes and groundwater. The book is aimed at the various players faced with challenges in groundwater management, practitioners from local and central governments, non-governmental organizations, groundwater management projects and the users themselves.

The book communicates practical ideas – on ‘what can be done’, gathered from a variety of sources. This report is part of an update to the Ground Water Protection Council’s Report, State Oil and Gas Regulations Designed to Protect Water Resources.1 The purpose is to document and outline the range of definitions and requirements for protecting groundwater, based on the regulations of oil and gas agencies and water quality protection.

liquid or chemical material to the groundwater protection coordinator designated by the (local government authority). Since it is known that improperly abandoned wells can become a direct conduit for contamination of groundwater by surface water, all abandoned wells.

An interactive story map of drinking water and local options for protection serves as a reference tool for local units of government looking to enact local policies to better protect their drinking water.

The project was funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Groundwater Protection by Local Government. INTRODUCTION. Local Groundwater Protection book half of the population of the United States receives its drinking water from underground sources, or groundwater. It is also a major source for irrigation, industrial processes, and livestock watering.

Half of the residents of Illinois depend on groundwater for their drinking. Groundwater protection guides covering: requirements, permissions, risk assessments and controls (previously covered in GP3). Many national groundwater protection schemes differentiate at least three type of source protection zones, often referred to as the wellhead protection zone (zone I), inner protection zone (zone II), and outer protection zone (zone III); zones II and III are sometimes further subdivided.

In the most typical and simplest case, these zones are arranged in succession around a groundwater. the National Groundwater Policy Forum: A Guide to Groundwater Pol By The Conservation Foundation) [foreword by William K.

Summary chapters that describe the background to groundwater contamination problems are combined with detailed case studies. This book is designed to assist with the initial development of a plan and with the ongoing management of a program for groundwater protection. Local groundwater protection programs can help prevent unexpected and costly water supply problems.

A northern Illinois community has learned first hand the hardship and disruption caused by the loss of a water well.

The manual ‘Understanding Groundwater & Wells in manual drilling’ complements the 4 technical training handbooks and highlights those essential subjects which are relevant to manual drilling, geo-hydrology, hygiene, well installation and well development in practice, in simple and.

A Fully-Integrating CSGWPP occurs when all federal, State, and local ground water protection efforts are coordinated and when all decision-making is based on a State's understanding of the ground water resource, all actual or potential contamination sources, and the State's comprehensive ground water protection goal, priorities, and approaches.

Groundwater resources are primarily managed by abstraction licensing. The primary aim of all of the position statements is the prevention of pollution of groundwater and protection of it as a resource. Groundwater protection is long term, so these principles and position. A GCD is a local unit of government authorized by the Texas Legislature and ratified at the local level to manage and protect groundwater.

Although local groundwater conservation districts have existed in Texas for more than 50 years, the idea of forming a new GCD is.
