The scientific monograph entitled "Protection of groundwater in Poland" is an attempt to summarize the problems of anthropogenic threat and protection of groundwater in Poland. It is based on many years of research by the author and collaborators conducted initially at the Institute of Environmental Management in Poznań, and then at the Department of Hydrogeology and Water Protection at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The first chapters highlight the natural and economic importance of groundwater, and then discuss the outbreaks of groundwater pollution and their impact on the groundwater environment. In particular, much attention has been paid to the risks associated with the impact of landfills, given the sustainability of these impacts. In particular, the chapter on pollutant migration discusses problems relating to nitrogen compounds, which are one of the main threats to groundwater quality. The part concerning the protection of groundwater presents the problems of protection of these waters in relation to various branches of the national economy and a critical analysis of the status in the field of protection of intakes as well as the use of spatial development plans and environmental impact assessments in the protection of groundwater. The summary contains proposals for various actions that should be taken to improve the state of groundwater protection in Poland. The work is addressed to specialists dealing with environmental protection. It can also be used in didactics at the faculties of natural sciences of universities.
