Abstract
The insidious nature with which the pollution of ground water occurs, the long elapsed time before it is detected, and the extended period required for it to regain its original quality make it essential to prevent pollution rather than attempt corrective measures after its occurrence. Relatively few of the state water pollution control agencies have adequate legal powers or personnel to prevent pollution of ground waters. Some actual examples of inadequacies of reportedly adequate statutory control are presented.
