    The water was then disposed adjacent to the compressor stations. Although the dumping took place from to (when Hinkley was a remote desert community with one school and a general store), PG&E did not inform the local water board about the contamination until December 7, incurred by Public Water Sytems (PWSs) required to meet federal drinking water quality stan-dards. The Source Water Protection Program, authorized by the Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), outlines a comprehensive plan to achieve maximum public health protection.

      Develop a wellhead protection plan if your community has a type I public water wells/public water system. A Wellhead Protection Program is designed for public water supplies. With Wellhead Protection, communities conduct a detailed study about its water wells including the area from where the well pulls its groundwater. The Wellhead Protection Program is a pollution prevention and management program used to protect underground based sources of drinking water. The objective of Carmel’s Wellhead Protection Program (WHP) is to manage or control potential sources of contamination though the City of Carmel with a particular focus on the eastern part of Carmel.

    Groundwater contamination occurs when man-made products such as gasoline, oil, road salts and chemicals get into the groundwater and cause it to become unsafe and unfit for human use. Materials from the land's surface can move through the soil and end up in the groundwater.

Environmental Protection /Region V, Library South Dearborn Street Chicago, Illinois Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into type of water pollution can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution.

The United States has one of the safest public drinking water supplies in the world. Over million Americans get their tap water from a community water US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates drinking water quality in public water systems and sets maximum concentration levels for water chemicals and pollutants.

In addition to setting standards for public water supplies, the SDWA regulates underground disposal of waste into deep wells. The SDWA has also developed a nationwide program for the states to implement wellhead protection programs in an effort to protect groundwater sources.

Groundwater Contamination and Its Impacts CHAPTER OVERVIEW Groundwater is an increasingly important re-source in the United States—it is relied on for about 50 percent of drinking water supplies; it is used to supply water for almost 80 percent of rural domestic and.

Protecting Local Ground-Water Supplies Through Wellhead Protection (USEPA, May18 pp.) Helpful booklet for citizens interested in protecting groundwater.

This assessment had three very limited purposes: (1) to describe the physical setting of ground water resources in the state, (2) to educate policy makers and the public about the potential for ground water contamination, and (3) to provide guidance for planning and assigning priorities to ground water protection efforts in the state.

The Magnificent Ground Water Connection was developed in cooperation with EPA by the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission. It is a compilation of some of the best ground water-related activities from previously existing curricula, seasoned with a collection of original materials and geared specifically to New England.

pathways of contamination • Understand the history of drinking water regulation • Describe the major SDWA programs • This module provides an overview of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The purpose of this module is to: o Explain the types of threats to drinking water and the importance of protecting it to ensure good public health;File Size: 1MB.

Furthermore, the effects of groundwater contamination do not end with the loss of well-water supplies. Several studies have documented the migration of contaminants from disposal or spill sites to nearby lakes and rivers as this groundwater passes through the hydrologic cycle, but the processes are not as yet well understood.

lawns. Source Water Protection (SWP) is the process of identifying and managing potential sources of contamination that may impact a drinking water supply. The ultimate goal of SWP is to prevent contaminants from entering a source of public drinking water. The North Carolina Source Water Protection Program (SWPP) is a voluntary program designedFile Size: KB.

The USEPA developed the concept of Wellhead Protection which focuses on protecting and preserving the quality of ground-water supplies. Following USEPA guidelines, many states, including Tennessee, established local Wellhead Protection programs and rules.

The data shows that more than 80 percent of groundwater is unfit for drinking or daily use because of heavy contamination from surface water discharged by industrial plants and farming units.

Approximat Mgal/d of water were withdrawn for public supply in61 percent from surface-water sources. Public supply represents about 14 percent of total freshwater withdrawals. In some States, public-supply water sources include desalinated seawater or brackish groundwater that has been treated to reduce dissolved solids.

The saturated zone beneath the water table is recharged by the excess water that is not discharged to streams. The resulting rise in the water table increases ground-water storage(the volume of ground water stored within an aquifer system).In late spring, summer, and early fall, evaporation and transpiration by plants capture most of the water that would otherwise recharge the aquifer, while.

Homeowners should keep files on their well construction, maintenance issues, location of possible sources of contamination, water analysis, etc. Sampling and analysis of private wells is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Groundwater contamination of arsenic can occur from various anthropogenic sources such as pesticides, wood preservatives, glass manufacture, and other miscellaneous arsenic uses.

These sources can be monitored and controlled. Arsenic contamination was reported as early as ; however, skin lesions .Identifying Future Drinking Water Contaminants is based on a workshop on emerging drinking water contaminants.
