This book addresses the theoretical background necessary to accomplish planning and management of groundwater systems, and presents up to date applications of the decision-aid techniques in this field. Groundwater systems play an essential role in meeting the ever increasing use of water for different purposes. Proper design and management of such systems should therefore be a very important matter of concern, not only to ensure that water will be available in adequate quantity and quality to satisfy demands but also to guarantee that this would be done in an optimal manner in a IWRM perspective. There are many different decisions to be taken: where to locate wells, how much water is to be pumped, remedial strategies, to be adopted, water supply structures (especially pumping equipment and pipe networks) to be installed, monitoring networks to be defined, etc.
