Resource Losses from Surface Water.

Groundwater is a major natural resource in the United States and is often more easily available than surface water. Between 40 and 50 percent of the population depends on groundwater as its primary source of drinking water (U. S. Water Resources Council, a; U.S. EPA. John Karl Bohlke.

U.S. Geological Survey, This paper reports on the current state of surface water and ocean contamination models—based on the needs of US Government agencies, their Information Technology (IT) systems, and business processes. In addition, down-selection and evaluation criteria were applied in a two-step process. In Step 1, sixty five surface water and ocean models were identified and researched. The site was partially closed with an incomplete soil cover in Analysis of site groundwater, surface water, soil and air showed elevated levels of 1,2-dichloroethene, thichlorothine, vinyl chloride, phenol, and zinc. High levels of volatile organic compounds were found in adjacent tributaries, suggesting groundwater contamination.
