Streams and groundwater are inherently connected. In temperate climates, for instance, groundwater discharge to streams supplies the baseflow component of streamflow. Groundwater sustains streamflow in dry periods and is therefore critical for maintaining aquatic ecosystems and wetlands. Water fluxes between groundwater and streams also mediate the transport of contaminants between these two...
