Ground Water Forum

The Ground Water Forum is a group of groundwater scientists that support the Superfund and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) programs in each of EPA’s 10 regional offices.

The group was organized to exchange information related to groundwater remediation issues at Superfund and RCRA sites. Additional participants come from the EPA Laboratory System and EPA headquarters. The forum promotes communication between the regions and the laboratories and has three primary purposes:

  • To bring the current state-of-the-science to each regional office as it is developed through research efforts at the labs.
  • To focus laboratory resources on research areas important to groundwater scientists working in each EPA region.
  • To maintain consistency in the interpretation of guidance and application of policy throughout the country.
