    Guidelines for Estimating Unmetered Landscaping Water Use KL McMordie Stoughton July Prepared for U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program Under Contract DE-ACRL Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Richland, Washington Listed below are nine out of the 32 wells measured across Cape Cod by the Commission's Water Resources staff. These nine are employed as index wells to be used with Technical Bulletin Estimation of High Groundwater Levels for Construction and Land Use Planning to predict high groundwater levels.

    When depth to ground water has been measured it should be adjusted to reflect the adjusted depth using the procedures outlined in Estimating Highest Groundwater Levels for Construction and Land Use Planning-A Cape Cod, Massachusetts Example, Michael H. Frimpter and Martha N. Fisher. USGS Water Resources Investigations   ¢ While estimating natural ground water recharge, it is essential to have a good idea of the different recharge mechanisms and their importance in the study area. ¢ Choice of methods should also be guided by the objectives of the study, available data and the possibilities to .

    roject planning, design, and layout can begin once all site information and data has been collected and analyzed. The first step in planning, design, and layout is to develop a set of construction plans including a comprehensive site plan. A site plan is a graphical depiction showing the layout of a project.

Water-level records from about sites were used to make four maps of annual water-level ranges: feet, feet, feet, feet, and feet.

Nine observation wells with 16 or more years of record were used to index water-level fluctuations throughout Cape : Michael H. Frimpter, Martha N. Fisher. A technique for estimating the level to which groundwater can rise as a consequence of weather and seasonal factors has been developed.

The Cape Cod Commission's Technical Bulletin " Estimation of High Groundwater Levels for Construction and Land Use Planning " (revised in ) provides a method to use current water level measurements at the project site in conjunction with monthly index well data to estimate the maximum seasonal high groundwater level.

Estimating highest ground-water levels for construction and land use planning: a Cape Cod, Massachusetts, example,Water-Resources Investigations Report Handbook of Ground Water Development PREFACE There has been a long-standing need for a comprehensive book on ground water development.

The lack of sufficient texts may be because the industry is highly fragmented, and a number of technologies and sciences are needed for the understanding of the occurrence, extraction,File Size: 33KB. Table 3 shows the change in land-use types which shows due to construction of Indira Sagar Canal Command Project, many changes found in command area as the fallow land converted into cultivative land and greenery of command area is also increasing.

The stress on ground water is deceases due to surface water by: 5. Groundwater - Designing Buildings Wiki - Share your construction industry knowledge. The term 'groundwater' refers to all water which is below the surface of the ground and within the permanently saturated zone.

A groundwater body is a distinct volume of groundwater within an aquifer. The term ‘hydrogeology’ refers to the nature, distribution and movement of groundwater in soils and rocks. It consists in assessing and prioritising the risk levels associated with the activity of a facility on the territory.

These levels enable the definition of zones, each having its own land-use planning and construction rules. For high-risk levels, expropriation and relinquishment may be applied (French Ministry of the Environment, b).Cited by: References U.S.

The saturated zone beneath the water table is recharged by the excess water that is not discharged to streams. The resulting rise in the water table increases ground-water storage (the volume of ground water stored within an aquifer system).

In late spring, summer, and early fall, evaporation and transpiration by plants capture most of the water that would otherwise recharge the aquifer, while.

A Technique for Estimating Ground-Water Levels at Sites in Rhode Island From Observation-Well Data By Roy S. Socolow, Michael H. Frimpter, Michael Turtora, and Richard W. Bell Abstract Estimates of future high, median, and low ground- water levels in Rhode Island are needed for engineer.

Groundwater can also come to the surface as a spring or be pumped from a well. Both of these are common ways we get groundwater to drink. About 50 percent of our municipal, domestic, and agricultural water supply is groundwater.

How does the ground store water. Groundwater is stored in the tiny open spaces between rock and sand, soil, and gravel. Due to increase of settlement area will directly impact the decrease of ground water level.

Proper land use planning and Groundwater management is key to socioeconomic up-liftment of a region.

These methods produce estimates. The depth to the water table can change (rise or fall) depending on the time of year. During the late winter and spring when accumulated snow starts to melt and spring rainfall is plentiful, water on the surface infiltrates into the ground and the water table rises.

When water-loving plants start to grow again in the spring and precipitation gives way to hot, dry summers, the. Estimating Water-Table Elevation and Depth to Water Table Water-Table Elevation Model ArcMap is used interpolate water elevation data and create a model of the watertable.
