One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximatelysq mi (, km 2) in portions of eight states (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). The United States has enacted extensive federal legislation to fight water pollution.

Laws include the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (), the Clean Water Act (), the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (), the Safe Drinking Water Act (), and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, as amended in.

What We Do. Our groundwater research, education, and outreach program primarily works with the water resources industry (public water supply utilities, irrigation districts, water districts, etc.), research, planning, and regulatory agencies on the local, county, state and federal level, farm advisors in county cooperative extension, the agricultural industry, and with NGOs engaged in.

Ground water contamination is of increasing concern in the United States because about 50 percent of our drinking water comes from well water. The causes of contamination stem from both point sources and nonpoint sources.

Since ground water moves slowly, the contaminant may affect only a small portion of an aquifer for a considerable period of Cited by: Over the years, the book industry has remained a massive, greatly influential global consumer market.

The publication of Part II makes available the bulk-basic data collected during the Stutsman County study and functions as a supplemental reference to Parts I and III.

The spotlight may have been on California this past summer, but groundwater reservoirs—often the back-up for surface water supplies during prolonged drought—are in decline across much of the southern United States.
