Sustainability of Ground-Water Resources Sustainability of Ground-Water Resources: Hydrologic, geologic, and ecologic concepts must be considered for sustainable use of ground-water resources. The Importance of Ground Water in the Great Lakes Region The Importance of Ground Water in the Great Lakes Region: Ground water is a major natural resource in the Great Lakes Region that helps link the Great Lakes and their watershed. This linkage needs to be more fully understood and quantified before society can address some of the important water-resources issues in the Great Lakes.
Ground-water-level monitoring and the importance of long-term water-level data Ground-water-level monitoring and the importance of long-term water-level data: Measurements of water levels in wells provide the most fundamental indicator of the status of this resource and are critical to meaningful evaluations of the quantity and quality of ground water and its interaction with surface water. Ground Water and Surface Water A Single Resource Ground Water and Surface Water A Single Resource: Effective land and water management requires a clear understanding of the linkages between ground water and surface water.
