The Fourth National Ground Water Quality Symposium was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, September 20-22, 1978. Some of the subject areas discussed were: Hydrology; ground water research; standards; models; water borne diseases; and land application.
"August 1979." "EPA-600/9-79-029." Includes bibliographical references. "Grant no. R805747." Supported by the National Water Well Association under the sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Print monograph.
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.
