Proceedings of the Ground-Water/Surface-Water Interactions Workshop

To address the technical concerns related to ecological impacts in the ground-water/surface-water transition zone, EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) sponsored a workshop in January 1999 to provide an opportunity for individuals from various scientific and technical backgrounds to discuss the importance of the ground-water/surface-water transition zone and help regulators better understand environmental issues relating to the connections between ground water and surface water. The workshop and these proceedings provide a first step to understanding the fundamentals of evaluating the effects of contaminated ground water discharging through the transition zone.
