TOXIC WASTE-GROUND-WATER CONTAMINATION PROGRAM BACKGROUND Contamination of ground water caused by the infiltra­ tion of man-made chemicals from both point (single- source type discharges) and nonpoint sources (areal type discharges) is a major environmental problem facing the Nation.

Processes such as oxidation, biological degradation (which sometimes renders contaminants less toxic), and adsorption (binding of materials to soil particles) may take place in the soil layers of the unsaturat.

discovery of toxic waste dumps such as Love Canal and Valley of the Drums in the s. CERCLA is informally called Superfund. The Superfund program is administered by EPA in cooperation with state and tribal governments.

It allows EPA to clean up hazardous waste Toxic waste--ground-water contamination program book and to force responsible parties to perform cleanups or reimburse the. Industrial discharges, urban activities, agriculture, groundwater pumpage, and disposal of waste all can affect groundwater quality.

Contaminants can be human-induced, as from leaking fuel tanks or toxic chemical spills. Pesticides and fertilizers applied to lawns and crops can accumulate and migrate to the water table. Hazardous waste sites can lead to groundwater contamination if there are barrels or other containers laying around that are full of hazardous materials.

If there is a leak, these contaminants can eventually make their way down through the soil and into the groundwater. The report describes the research being conducted as part of the Toxic Waste Ground-Water Contamination Program of the U.S.

The seven papers included in this volume were presented at the Toxic Waste Technical Meeting, Tucson, Arizona, in March Preventing contamination before it occurs is the best solution. Because ground water contamination can have such serious consequences, many citizens, as well as local, state, and federal agencies, are taking action to protect ground water resources.

Groundwater is the principal source of drinking water in central Florida. The most important hydrogeologic unit is the Floridan aquifer system, consisting of fractured limestone and dolomite limestone. Activities of man in areas of recharge to the Floridian aquifer system that may be affecting groundwater quality include: (1) the use of drainage wells for stormwater disposal in.
