The decisive role of groundwater as a decentralized source of drinking water both in rural and urban settings cannot be underrated. It accounts for nearly 80 percent of the rural domestic water needs, and 50 percent of the urban water needs. The inevitable importance of groundwater to humankind has led to its over-exploitation which is now resulting to aquifer contamination. Although many cases of contaminated groundwater have occurred throughout the globe, few successful experiences in remediating the problems are identifiable at this time. Many countries are in the early process of identifying their potential groundwater contamination problems while others are seeking for its remedy. At present, many innovative technologies are being evaluated for their usefulness and swift responses to groundwater contamination control as the conventional extraction and treatment processes have often proven to be very expensive and slow with respect to remediating the
