    Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into type of water pollution can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution. Wyoming’s semi-arid basins, characterized by low precipitation, high evap-oration, and reduced soil permeability, generally provide much less recharge to underlying aquifers. Groundwater is obtained from wells or springs. Some ground-water in the state may be unsuitable for drinking due to poor water quality or low rates of Size: KB.
