In many places in the world, groundwater is threatened either by excessive use or by contamination resulting from industrial activities, agricultural practices and waste disposal methods. Over the last two decades many researchers and practitioners have concentrated their efforts on addressing these issues. This proceedings brings together some of the results of these efforts. The papers cover six general topics: 1) Heterogeneous aquifers- 2) groundwater remediation and risk management- 3) stochastic approaches to subsurface hydrology- 4) drainage water relationship to water quality- 5) groundwater modeling- and 6) water and contaminant movement in porous and fractured media. This volume is also available as part of the 6-volume set Water for a Changing Global Community, ISBN 0-7844-0281-7.
