Groundwater quality in the Surficial Aquifer System, Southeastern United States:

July 22, 2022

Groundwater provides nearly 50 percent of the Nation’s drinking water. To help protect this vital resource, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project assesses groundwater quality in aquifers that are important sources of drinking water (Burow and Belitz, 2014). The surficial aquifer system constitutes one of the important aquifer systems being evaluated.
