Sharapov R.V. Principles of groundwater monitoring

Principles of groundwater monitoring

Sharapov R.V.

In this paper we have identified the main problem of groundwater monitoring. We have listed the monitoring indicators, such as the treatment of groundwater levels, the chemical composition and temperature of the groundwater, groundwater balance in natural and disturbed conditions, abstraction of groundwater, the cost of springs, the amount of water entering the aquifer by artificial replenishment of groundwater, state of the aeration zone, conditions of groundwater interaction with the environment. We considered the organization of the observation network. Necessary to distinguish between support and specialized support network. Supporting observation network designed to provide years of collecting information on indicators of groundwater. Specialized monitoring network to study local violations of the groundwater under the influence of man-made objects. Important to conduct baseline monitoring of natural and slightly altered groundwater.

Keywords: monitoring, groundwater, monitoring network.
