Urban Development Impacted by High Groundwater

Tue, 2019-10-22 21:25 -- 6147839

This session will provide an overview of the hydrological processes which determine high groundwater conditions. The topics include hydraulic conductivity, specific yield, Darcy’s Law, recharge rates, rainfall regimes, climate change and appropriate models and parameter values.

Specifically the talk will address hydrological engineering design of (i) sizing of infiltration basins and (ii) subsoil drainage for control of groundwater levels.

The presentation is based on over 30 years of WA experience in urban hydrology applied to major subdivision projects.
