Aquifers and Groundwater, from USGS Water-Science School

Aquifers and Groundwater, from USGS Water-Science School | Nelson Waimea Plains Aquifers | Scoop.it

An aquifer is the saturated zone beneath the water table that holds a large quantity of water. Humans use the water from aquifers by building wells. However, it is important to take precautions when pumping the water so that the well doesn’t dry out. It’s also important to keep in mind the level of the water table so that a cone of depression doesn’t occur.  Groundwater is arguably the most valuable resource on earth and contains rocks below the water table that fill up with water. The rocks that are at greater depts contain cracks that are reduced in size; therefore, their porosity and permeability are not as high as the rocks closest to the surface.
