Surface water and ground water are frequently interconnected, though they are often isolated in policy and regulation. When groundwater and surface water interact, unique gradients develop and the two realms can be considered essentially one resource. Surface water has the ability to enhance or detract from ground water quality and vice versa. The ground water/surface water interaction areas may be considered an ecotone between land and water environments and, in some cases, contain the hyporheic zone. These areas provide important ecological functions, support a high degree of biodiversity, and have the potential to affect water quality work. Further understanding of surface water/ground water interactions will play an important role in the development of sustainable stream restoration techniques.
