Chapter 12: Field Methods
"The day is past when the only activity of the hydrogeologist was to locate and design a water well.
Today, hydrogeologists are involved in many phases of resource management, including environmental
impact analysis, as integral members of a multidisciplinary team. Hydrogeological studies are
necessary and generally required by regulatory agencies for site studies prior to construction
of such projects as sanitary landfills, land-treatment systems of wastewater, surface mines,
power plants, artificial-recharge lagoons, nuclear-waste repositories, dams, and reservoirs.
Hydrogeologists are also helping to remediate contaminated sites."
