Protecting groundwater for health: Managing the quality of drinking-water sources

Protecting groundwater for health provides a structured approach to analysing hazards to groundwater quality, assessing the risk they may cause for a specific supply, setting priorities in addressing these, and developing management strategies for their control. For health professionals, it thus is a tool for access to environmental information needed for such a process and for professionals from other sectors, it gives a point of entry for understanding health aspects of groundwater management.
