Abstract

In this study, an overview of hydro geological processes and concepts regarding groundwater flow and contaminant in most parts of many countries .Groundwater pollution is imminent in most developing countries as a result of increased anthropogenic activities apart from possible natural pollutants. The world’s population is facing a water crisis, which is expected to worsen dramatically during the 21st century. Problems due to over exploitation of groundwater, as well as from natural and anthropogenic contamination are major challenges facing humanity. This study reviewed groundwater pollution and discussed possible remediation measures. It is recommended to carry out a continuous water quality monitoring program and development of effective management practices for utilization of water resources.
