The Water study Institute on the Technion (Israel Institute of know-how) is proud to have initiated and subsidized the foreign Workshop "Soil and Aquifer pollutants: Non-Aqueous section drinks - infection and Recla- tion", held may perhaps 13th-15th, 1996, at the Technion campus in Haifa. Groundwater infection is likely one of the urgent matters dealing with Israel and different nations which depend upon groundwater for water offer. In Israel, 60% of the water offer comes from groundwater, so much of it from huge aquifers.

The Mountain Aquifer is recharged within the larger terrain to the east, and flows, first in a phreatic quarter, then restricted, westward and beneath the Coastal Aquifer. This limestone aquifer has larger permeabilities and circulation velo- ties, so toxins can succeed in the groundwater rather quite simply. Smaller neighborhood aquifers also are vital elements within the nationwide water procedure. whereas measures are taken to guard those aquifers from pollutants, there are destinations the place illness has already happened. additionally, unintentional toxins will not be completely refrained from sooner or later. for this reason, realizing the methods of groundwater illness, recommending the correct measures for combating it, and choosing the easiest capability for reclamation as soon as toxins has happened, are of serious functional value. Non-aqueous part drinks (NAPLs) are one of the most important contaminants.
