THE INFLUENCE OF UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTIONS IN CRYSTALLINE ROCK ON GROUNDWATER CONDITIONS AND THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL RECHARGE TO RESTORE A LOWERED PIEZOMETRIC SURFACE

The increasing activity of underground construction in Sweden causes lowering of groundwater and land-subsidence in clay-filled areas. A method to prevent the lowering and restore the head is artificial recharge. In Sweden this is done through wells in soil and through bore-holes from the underground construction to the fissured uppermost zone of the bedrock. Clogging of the aquifer occurs, but careful operation and maintenance of the recharge plant will reduce this problem. /TRRL/
