      from the farm into ground water, the main concern is one of stewardship, protection of water quality in the percolating waters that recharge the ground water. This water will travel to many destinations (wells, streams, and lakes) nearby and, potentially, far away, and may impact many differentCited by: Water quality protection practices help to reduce runoff pollution and protect our water resources. Extension provides the resources below to assist in these efforts, as well as more in-depth coverage of nonpoint source or runoff pollution and its prevention on the Lawns & Landscapes, Stormwater Management and Crop Production pages of this site.

      Protection of groundwater quantity and quality can best be accomplished by controlling potential contaminant sources and by managing land uses in prime recharge areas. Using knowledge of local geology and groundwater flow directions, estimates can be made of the land areas contributing recharge to a particular well or to an aquifer as a whole. groundwater protection practices developed within other jurisdictions to the Fraser River providing a vital source of public water supply, groundwater plays an essential role in the by implementing groundwater quality protection measures. Protection measures offer a.

Protecting drinking-water resources is a key barrier in preventing health effects from pathogens and toxic chemicals. Effective action builds on cooperation amongst practitioners in many fields - drinking-water supply, health, environment, land-use planning, agriculture and many : Hardcover.

Kenya's draft Policy for the Protection of Groundwater provides most of the requirements for improving groundwater governance, including participation and empowerment of groundwater users, decentralization of management to local level, integration of surface and groundwater management, improving monitoring and data collection, identifying sites for managed aquifer recharge.

Protecting Groundwater for Health Managing the Quality of Drinking-water Sources Edited by Oliver Schmoll, Guy Howard, John Chilton and Ingrid Chorus. Protecting groundwater for health provides a structured approach to analysing hazards to groundwater quality, assessing the risk they may cause for a specific supply, setting priorities in addressing these, and developing management strategies for their control.

For health professionals, it thus is a tool for access to environmental information. This publication provides guidance to water-sector decision makers and planners on how to deal with the quality dimension of groundwater resources management in the World Bank's client countries.

There is growing evidence of increasing pollution threats to groundwater and some well-documented cases of irreversible damage to important aquifers.

Purpose of Water Quality Standards. WQS are the foundation for a wide range of programs under the CWA. They serve multiple purposes including establishing the water quality goals for a specific waterbody, or portion thereof, and providing the regulatory basis for establishing water quality-based effluent limits (WQBELs) beyond.

Additionally, the State Water Board is solely responsible for allocating surface water rights, regulating public drinking water systems, and administering financial assistance programs. public wells across the state have elevated nitrate levels and roughly 10% of private wells in vulnerable areas already exceed health limits.

This is due to fertilizers that are carried by rain, irrigation and other surface waters into groundwater. Yes — people have been impacted by this contaminated water from their groundwater sources.
