Groundwater Engineering for Water Supplies - Groundwater Availability in the United States

Conrad G. Leszkiewicz, PhD, PE, PG

The dominant application of groundwater engineering is the provision of water supplies for municipalities, agriculture, and industries. Sufficient groundwater supplies are essential for the health and economic well-being of the United States. With increasing demands for water from growing world populations, agriculture, and industry, as well as growing intermittent, if not long-term, shortages of surface water due to droughts, groundwater is becoming an even more important source of fresh water for society.

This 4-hour course will provide an overview of the availability of groundwater in the United States that is used in municipal, agricultural, and industrial applications. It will provide essential knowledge of aquifers, groundwater storage, and associated terminology in order to understand this most important natural resource. It will also highlight the United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) effort to evaluate and assess the availability of those groundwater resources, including impacts and concerns for the future availability.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
