Groundwater Hydrology: Engineering, Planning, and Management 

Ahmadi, A., Akhbari

Preference :

The demand for fresh water is increasing as the world’s population continues to grow and expects higher standards of living. Water conservation, better systems’ operation, higher end-use, and water allocation efficiencies have not been able to offset the growing demand. Many societies are struggling to bring supply and demand to a sustainable level. Although water is abundant on earth, freshwater accounts only for about 2.5% of global water reserves. Out of this amount, approximately 30% is stored as groundwater and the same amount is on the surface as rivers and lakes; the remaining reserves are held in glaciers, ice caps, soil moisture, and atmospheric water vapor. Groundwater is a source of the vital natural flow. In arid and semiarid areas, groundwater may represent 80% or more of the total water resources. The public has a perception of groundwater as a reliable, clean, and virtually unlimited source of water supply. Even though there could be exceptions, it is a dependable source almost everywhere in the world.
