A definitive consultant, this booklet makes a speciality of the layout and development of water infrastructure tasks inside of karst formations and gives engineering ways for fighting and mitigating their environmental difficulties. It positive aspects 2 hundred figures, investigative innovations, useful layout suggestions, case reviews with failure research, standards proposals for groundwater security zoning, and an intensive assessment of the original hydrogeological dynamics. the writer provides a wealth of information gathered in the course of his function as investigating and designing hydrogeologist on karst tasks. He offers readers a greater figuring out of the demanding situations curious about engineering and building in karst formations.

The aquifer reacts quickly to high precipitation (often above 30mm) in the rainy season, sometimes as fast as in 10 to 15 hours and in some cases even faster. During the winter wet season, the reaction of aquifer to precipitation is sharply expressed. 4). The rate of increase of the water table is also very fast. In piezometer O-8 the water table jumps almost 90m in only 10 hours. The difference between maximum and minimum levels of a water table can be great. 5). Two periods with different characteristics of fluctuation can be distinguished in many karst terranes: the wet season, with the aquifer’s water table showing continuous vertical changes, and the dry season characterized by slow but constant lowering of the aquifer’s water table.

During recovery, the water table continued to rise above the starting position of the water level, so that it exceeded the initial level by 130cm (surplus water-level recovery) for approximately 1 to 2 days. This can be explained by the kinetic energy of water mass in the karst aquifer as a result of the creation of a depression and turbulent flows in the part of the karst channel (karst siphon) being pumped out. 3 Palata Spring intake structure: (1) Wells; (2) borehole; (3) discharging zone; (4) concrete cut-off; (5) karstified dolomite; (6) flysch; (7) marine mud; (8) talus (carbonate blocks, fragments, terra-rosa, sand, and clay); (9) very pervious zone (terrarosa, sand, and clay are washed out); (10) piezometric line before pumping test; (11) piezometric line during pumping test; (12) ancient mill; (13) road; (14) sea level.
