Abstract (Summary)
Clements Lauri L. Well Water Management Assessment for the City of Osseo, Wisconsin Master of Science – Risk Control Dr. Brian Finder 05/2001 95 pgs American Psychological Association Manual The purpose of this study was to identify the extent that effective wellhead protection-related activities are being performed or promoted in Osseo. A review of current literature was conducted to determine the risks associated with municipal wells depending on potential sources of contamination. The review of literature covered three main areas including; groundwater characteristics and contamination analysis, losses associated with groundwater contamination, and contamination control methods. Groundwater quality is dependent on many factors such as contamination susceptibility, movement, and types of contaminants introduced. The potential for human exposure and health effects associated with potential contamination are discussed in detail. The study collected a great deal of data about the City’s water resources. Finally, recommendations were made based on the contamination inventory and assessment of current wellhead protection activities. 2
