Wastes and water under the ground: New Orleans, Louisiana, September 26”29, 1973



The International Symposium on Underground Waste Management and Artificial Recharge was sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

Forty-seven international experts presented papers on the state of the art, regional history, concepts, current problems, laboratory and field investigations, and operational case histories for the management of waste products and artificial recharge in deep underground space. Eight papers were by foreign authors-two each from England and Israel and one each from Canada, West Germany, and Switzerland.
