Decisions concerning ground water protection and public health should be based on all relevant data, measured and analyzed with technically valid techniques. In areas where ground water quality is of concern, a large amount of ground water data may exist at several agencies, in many forms. This data is likely to be of variable quality, with differing spatial and temporal characteristics. A methodology is presented for identifying and integrating available ground water data.
