Land zonation of different classes of aquifer vulnerability is a valuable tool for management and planning in this volume the recent developments within the interlinked areas of groundwater pollution aquifer recharge and vulnerability are highlighted. The vulnerability of a ground water resource to contamination depends on intrinsic suscep tibility as well as the locations and types of sources of naturally occurring and anthropogenic contamination relative locations of wells and the fate and transport of the contaminants. Groundwater pollution aquifer recharge and vulnerability mon 03 dec 2018 162600 gmt groundwater pollution aquifer recharge and pdf attention to the need always to integrate consider and the need to shield aquifers from pollution and ation of groundwater when making decisions on depletion is self evident urban infrastructure planning and . Numerous artificial sources of recharge associated with urban and residential land uses drain wells ditches and septic drain fields accelerate the movement of contaminants to the aquifer the highly permeable aquifer allows contaminants to spread rapidly making it difficult to clean up contamination once it has entered the aquifer. What is groundwater vulnerability groundwater vulnerability is a measure of how easy or how hard it is for pollution or contamination at the land surface to reach a production aquifer stated another way it is a measure of the degree of insulation that natural and manmade factors provide to keep pollution away from groundwater
