IAH’s Urban Groundwater network (UGN)

For and by hydrogeologists active in urban groundwater world-wide


The urban groundwater environment is characterized by its high dynamics and heavy pressures on its quality and quantitative use. Urban groundwater is a major source of urban water supply worldwide and represents a key resource for achieving water supply security under climate change and extended drought.

IAH’s Urban Groundwater Network (UGN) is an official network of International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH), created to:

  • Support the development of science, understanding and management of urban groundwater
  • Foster knowledge-exchange between network members and other professionals

There are many ongoing activities happening in the network, including workshops, conference sessions and network meetings.

We hope our new website will highlight the network’s activities and encourage others to get involved.
