Figure 3.4 shows that the 29 cases considered here also involved damages to natural resources other than groundwater, such as surface water, wetlands, air, fish, wildlife, and cultural resources.

Figure 3.5 shows that agencies have tended to use a greater variety of methods as the number of resources damaged increased.
