A general introduction provides something of the history of groundwater, its present use, and the means by which it can become contaminated. A priority listing of sources of ground-water contamination is presented for four geographical areas of the United States. Phosphorus is discussed in terms of its fate in soil systems. The fate of organic and inorganic nitrogen compounds is also discussed giving consideration to sorption and biological utilization and degradation. Criteria important to the survival and transport of bacteria and viruses is presented along with information concerning indicator organisms in the subsurface environment.
