In many parts of the world, groundwater is the only resource available to meet the vital needs of the population, especially in dry areas. The availability and quality of such resources are highly threatened now by climate change and numerous pollution factors. Numerical models of flow and transport in saturated porous media are of major significance in the realization of simulations of management scenarios and in the evaluation of potential risks of pollution. The main constraint to the development and implementation of these models is the quantification of the parameters of flow and transport phenomena. In fact, these parameters fully control the results of the simulations. To overcome these limitations, field experiments are essential in order to minimize the errors associated with the results of these simulations. This chapter presents some applications on different Moroccan sites, which are vulnerable to pollution, allowing the risk assessment related with the threats to the local groundwater resources and showing the major role of these tools for the preservation of the quality of groundwater resources. © 2016 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
