Hidden Sea: Ground Water, Springs, and Wells, 2nd edition
by Francis H. Chapelle
The Hidden Sea tells the story of human interaction with groundwater throughout history. Chapelle divides the book into three sections: the folklore of groundwater, the geology of aquifers, and the environmental problems occurring as the result of groundwater contamination. The book also includes tables and illustrations. Written for the general reader, The Hidden Sea offers an entertaining examination of the groundwater resource that will be meaningful to anyone who has ever drilled a well, soaked in a mineral spring, or just wondered why the tap water smelled funny.
