Coastal Aquifer Management monitoring, modeling and case studies by Alexander H.D. Cheng and Driss Ouazar pdf download. About 70% of the world’s population dwells in coastal zones. With the economic and population growth, the shortage in freshwater supply becomes increasingly acute. With surface water more and more depleted and polluted, coastal communities have turned to groundwater to make up for the shortfall. For domestic supply purposes, the percentage of groundwater use has increased to more than 40% on a worldwide basis. Coastal aquifers are highly sensitive to anthropogenic disturbances.

Inappropriate management of coastal aquifers can lead to irreversible damages, leading to their destruction as freshwater sources. Being aware of the threat, federal, state, and local water agencies have intensified saltwater intrusion monitoring and prevention projects, and increased coastal aquifer planning and management efforts. In the last two decades, a significant amount of knowledge has been accumulated and new technologies were developed. This book is an effort to assemble these advancements in order to share them with the communities, the technical profession, and the water supply industry, as well as governmental regulators and policy makers.
