The 23 papers and 12 case histories presented at the conference and in this report covered all aspects of groundwater pollution with emphasis on European problems and practices. The conference made it clear that groundwater pollution is a problem in the heavily populated and industrial portions of Europe. Governmental bodies are aware of the situation and are working to formulate legislative and regulatory mechanisms to prevent and control pollution. In England new (1972) legislation will aid in stemming pollution from hazardous wastes; the pollution problems associated with high groundwater velocities and little filtration in the fissured chalk (limestone) aquifers are particularly troublesome.
