Freshwater has become a limited resource in many parts of the world. In arid and semi-arid regions, groundwater levels are declining at unstainable levels. In many industrial areas, groundwater is contaminated and unsuitable for drinking water. Sustainability and groundwater contamination is addressed by first learning the theory of saturated flow and solute transport under ideal conditions. Subsequently, we learn how to simplify a complex groundwater system so solutions can be found. At the end of the course, conceptual, analytical, and simulation models are put in the broader context of past, current, and future groundwater quantity and quality issues. They are affected by natural or human actions. Throughout the course, guest speakers discuss topics of current interest related to water. This elective course is intended for seniors and graduate students interested in subsurface water and solute transport applications to sustainable groundwater use and prevention of pollution. Graduate students review recent literature findings and discuss their findings in a group setting at a mutually convenient time.
