Why You Should Monitor Groundwater?
What is groundwater?
Groundwater is water that is stored below the earth’s surface. When rain or other sources of water come into contact with the ground, the majority of it travels below the surface. Though much of this moisture is then absorbed by plants or returned to the atmosphere (through infiltration), some water will travel deeper beneath the surface – where it reaches and saturates a rock level. This level is called the water table. Once it reaches this level, the water will slowly flow until it reaches a point of dispersal, such as the sea or a river.
