Salt water intrusion, from one or more sources outlined in this report, has resulted in degradation of subsurface fresh water aquifers in 43 States. Numerous case histories delineating current problems exist, providing adequate documentation of the seriousness of salt water intrusion. Waste from municipal and industrial sources entering natural streams or reservoirs are responsible for the more visible types of pollution; their detection is rapid, their source can usually be identified, and their elimination will result in rapid natural improvement of water quality. In contrast, the clandestine movement of salt water through a fresh water aquifer continues, defying early detection, concealing its origin, and creating long-term problems with expensive remedies.
