    The Floridan Aquifer Water is an endless cycle that repeats itself but doesn’t necessarily remain drinkable. Rain feeds vegetation, evaporation occurs, and then returns to rivers, streams, and lakes and may seep into rocks and caves underground through limestone and into aquifers. It may take many years before it reaches the surface. Water is a valuable resource that people tend to mishandle and take for granted. Explorers have dove into the paths underground to trace paths of water that flow deep

    Exploring deep potential aquifer in water scarce hard rock terrain Introduction Water scarcity is a well known problem in world particularly in the hard rock terrain of arid and semiarid Climatic condition, where groundwater level has considerably declined due to over-exploitation and atypical rainfall. Bore-wells upto 60 to 70 m deep are not yielding enough water to fulfill the requirement. The underground reservoirs are expected to dry by few decades in many regions, if the present level of exploitation

    interaction is the most common topic of research studying stream-aquifer interaction (Winter, 1995). In spite of difficulties observing and measuring the interactions directly, different techniques have been developed understanding the interaction. For example, measurement of hydraulic heads, temperature of water in the aquifer etc. The study of groundwater-surface water interaction is not limited to methods related to physical properties of aquifer but it is rather extended to chemical and numerical methods

    be an efficient source. Aquifers are the primary structures for storage and transportation of groundwater in all regions, including inland and coastal. What differentiates an inland aquifer from a coastal aquifer is that the later interacts with the ocean on the surface as well as underground. Freshwater coastal aquifers ultimately recharge at the ocean and therefore the interactions can cause the freshwater aquifer to be affected by the ocean as well as its saltwater aquifer. Given that inappropriate

    Chernobyl incident have demonstrated the limitation and vulnerability of surface water supplies. At such times there is an obvious advantage in having large reserves of water stored underground and protected from short-term pollution incidents. Our aquifers, and the resources they contain, need to be understood, monitored and protected, for our own use and that of future generations.

    well as snow serves as the primary sources of groundwater recharge for the aquifers while precipitation plays a minor role (Laczniak et al., n.d.). Due to there not being balanced discharge and recharge this has led to subsidence and as a result of this subsidence the storage capacity of aquifers has decreased due to compaction (Laczniak et al., n.d.). It is estimated that 187,000 acre feet of storage capacity in the aquifers has been lost due to compaction (Laczniak et
