The growing concern for subsurface water resources will surely be accompanied by an expanding ground-water data base, a data base which is already quite large. This paper is intended to point the way towards the efficient management of this data base which will assure that pertinent information is available when and where it is needed. The discussion presented here will describe the requirements of ground-water data management and survey some of the available capabilities which may serve to satisfy these requirements. Additionally, recommended modifications to existing capabilities will be presented which will make those capabilities more responsive to ground-water quality data management needs.
