Groundwater Cleanup: Cross-Program Task Force

Groundwater is an essential national resource - over half of the U.S. population relies on it for drinking water. However a large percentage of the nation's contaminated sites impacts groundwater. And groundwater contamination is usually very difficult to characterize and clean up, often requiring decades of treatment and monitoring. Almost every cleanup program must devote a significant level of attention and resources to groundwater issues.

Each groundwater contamination problem is uniquely complex, yet there are many common issues related to the management and cleanup of these problems. It is important that the nation's cleanup programs share the knowledge of their unique groundwater problems and work together to ensure the most effective, efficient and protective groundwater cleanups.
