The hydrologic cycle is a complex process, sensitive to climatic, ecological and human alterations. While water resources have been researched, altered, developed and distributed for human needs over the centuries, most concerns have focused on surface or ground waters as separate entities. Nearly all streams, lakes, reservoirs, wetlands and estuaries on Earth interact with groundwater. Recognizing the interface, interactions, and interdependence of ground and surface waters is critical to long term management of both availability and quality of water – our most essential resource.
