Shallow ground-water systems are commonly used for drinking water sources and they make up a large part of the baseflow in rivers and lakes.
However, shallow ground-water supplies are generally young (recently recharged) and, because there has been a wide variety of man-made pollutants produced in the 20th century, are more susceptible to contamination than deeper ground water.
