The Great Lakes are surface-water bodies that influence and are influenced by ground water. Ground-water/surface-water systems that were fairly stable under natural, pre-pumping, conditions, often change dramatically when subjected to pumping. In the introductory material linked to this page, the behavior of natural ground-water systems and their connection to surface-water bodies are first presented, then the effects of pumping wells on natural flow are illustrated.

Each conceptual discussion is linked to corresponding material from the case study.
