Measuring groundwater parameters to improve modeling and regulation

Abstract : Groundwater forms 70% of the world's freshwater supply, and is typically much cleaner than surface water supplies. It is therefore a key water resource that needs to be carefully managed. In urban areas, groundwater can be overexploited by industry, leading to degradation in quality. In order to regulate groundwater use, an understanding of the key parameters that control groundwater flow is required. This paper focuses on methods of measuring some of these parameters, so more accurate groundwater flow models can be created. The results from standard techniques are compared to other, lower technology methods. The Chalk aquifer of East Yorkshire in the UK is used as a case study. It is hoped that the lessons and principals learned by groundwater regulators in the UK and other developed countries can be used to avoid similar problems in the developing world as urban populations increase.
