The subsurface environment of ground water is characterized by a complex interplay of physical, geochemical and biological forces that govern the release, transport and fate of a variety of chemical substances. The impact of natural ground-water recharge and discharge processes on distributions of chemical constituents is understood for only a few types of chemical species. Also, these processes may be modified by both natural phenomena and man's activities so as to further complicate apparent spatial or temporal trends in water quality. A purpose of the document is to discuss measures that can be taken to ensure that uncertainties do not undermine the ability to make reliable predictions about the response of contamination to various corrective or preventive measures. The need exists for a resource document that brings together available technical information in a form convenient for ground-water personnel within EPA and state and local governments on whom EPA ultimately depends for proper ground-water management. The information contained in the handbook is intended to meet that need. It is applicable to many programs that deal with the ground-water resource. However, it is not intended as a guidance or support document for a specific regulatory program.
