Detailed Description

 Water-Quality Constraints to Groundwater Sustainability on Long Island, New York: The figure above illustrates some of the water-quality constraints to groundwater sustainability on Long Island, NY. The top left image shows a map of State and Federal Superfund point-source contamination sites; the bottom left image shows a map of where wastewater returnflow is a concern; and the top right image shows the distribution of public-supply wells on Long Island. Determining the source of water to a pumping well becomes more complicated when there are multiple pumping wells and sources of potential contamination, particularly nonpoint sources of contamination, such as wastewater returned to the aquifer from domestic-septic systems. (Figure for illustrative purposed only, data subject to change.)
