Leakages and seepages from mains water and sanitation systems become an important part of the hydrological cycle in the urban environment. In this respect, many sub-city aquifers are polluted with human wastes, General Introduction: The Need to Protect Groundwater 11 particularly where there is insufficient connection to mains sewerage. In Europe, the situation has improved with the implementation of the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive, but in many developing countries, septic tanks, cesspits and latrines are still common in major cities.

The aquifer matrix itself can become contaminated and pockets of pollutants can serve as continuous sources of contamination. For example, small pockets of organic solvents can remain as pollution sources virtually indefinitely because of their low solubility in water. Furthermore, changes in pH or other groundwater characteristics can cause the release of toxic materials, such as fluoride, from natural sources within aquifers. Given the hundreds of thousands of naturally occurring compounds in groundwater and aquifer materials, and the similarly large number of compounds present in waste water released to aquifers, understanding and managing pollution problems is a highly complex task.
