Abstract

Anthropogenic land surface activities, such as agriculture and industrialization, can have a deleterious impact on water quality in shallow aquifers and therefore limit the amount of water available at any location. This recognition of the interlinkages between land-use activities and groundwater quality has led to the concept of aquifer vulnerability. Very broadly, aquifer vulnerability is defined as the susceptibility of aquifer to pollution from human activities (NRC 1993; Gogu and Dassargues 2000; Connell and van den Daele 2003). Therefore, delineation of aquifer vulnerability is vital to protect groundwater resources and facilitate environmentally sustainable development.
