 Applied Hydrogeology of the Third Millennium must be Environmental because in the EU-27:

  • groundwater supplies 65% of drinking water and 25% of water for agricultural irrigation
  • 24% of the total groundwater body area was reported to be of poor chemical status and 9% to be of poor quantitative status
  • 29% of the total groundwater body area lacks sufficient capacity to meet the needs of ecosystems and people, owing to deterioration of groundwater quality or quantity

 ...and population growth and the need for water due to climatic changes will continuously increase the pressure on the groundwater
