Water is the most important basic resource as well as strategic resource in the world and the current water resource situation is severe in all countries, and China is no exception. The protection of water resources is an important part of the construction of ecological civilization, especially groundwater resources, which occupies a large proportion in our survival and development, and the single-minded exploitation and use has led to the frequent occurrence of groundwater problems. The current legal system of groundwater in China remains imperfect. This paper starts from the legal issues of groundwater pollution prevention and control in the context of ecological civilization, analyze and explore the groundwater environmental quality standards and legal responsibilities of groundwater pollution, and put forward a number of suggestions to improve the prevention and control of groundwater pollution, aiming to effectively prevent groundwater pollution, protect groundwater environment and achieve sustainable groundwater development.
