Contents Notes
The Symposium was dedicated to the late George Burke Maxey and the keynote address was given by Courtney Riordan ... A debate format on "The issues of our time" featured national authorities presenting neutral, pro, and con views followed by audience reaction, and addressed nine topics: * Ground water pollution--an imminent disaster or limited problem; * Ground water quality standards--necessary or irrelevant; * Land application of waste--an important future alternative or an accident waiting to happen; * The federal ground water protection program--today's hope or tomorrow's undoing; * State ground water protection programs--adequate or inadequate; * The 208 planning approach to ground water protection--a terrible joke or a foot in the door; * Controlled degradation and/or protection zones--sense or nonsense; *Ground water models--practical tools or intellectual toys; * water borne disease--a current threat or a thing of the past."--Page iv.
