GROUNDWATER – Vol. II – Groundwater Development in Hard Rocks - Shrikant Daji Limaye ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) small quantities of water available, at least for drinking purposes, in the dug wells or bore wells in the central, valley portion of a File Size: KB.

Karnataka is predominantly occupied by hard rock which covers more than 99% of the state and aquifers in these formations cater the major portion of water for drinking and agriculture requirements. Our open wells and borewells get water when they hit aquifers.

While open wells tap into shallow aquifers, borewells get water from deep aquifers. The geology of an area could affect water quality in an aquifer.

For example, if rock layers have high fluoride levels. Aquifer performance was tested in 24 locations to assess the groundwater potential of the hard rock terrain in the Chittar–Uppodai watershed of the Tambaraparani River basin. Geologically, the area consists of biotite gneiss, charnockite, and quartzite.

The aquifer characteristics, such as transmissivity (T), the storage coefficient, specific capacity, optimum yield, and the recovery rate Cited by: 3. In the hard rock area, groundwater is mainly developed through dug wells and dug cum bore wells tapping the weathered zone, the yield of open wells vary from 1 – 3 lps, whereas in dug wells tapping soft rocks including sedimentary formations, the yield is up to 5 lps.

The fluoride contamination in drinking water is already gone to the alarming level and it needs the immediate involvement and attention of all people to solve this problem.

Fluoride problem is higher in hard rock terrains in worldwide and Madurai is such type of hard rock region. Totally 54 samples were collected from the Madurai district of Tamilnadu with respect to by: This map depicts the locations and potential well yields of unconsolidated aquifers in western New York at a scale ofIt also delineates segments of aquifers that are used for public water supplies and designated by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation as ' Primary Water Supply Aquifers.

Factors Related to Well Yield in the Fractured-Bedrock Aquifer of New Hampshire By Richard Bridge Moore, Gregory E. Schwarz, Stewart F. Clark, Jr., Gregory J. Walsh, and James R. Degnan Abstract The New Hampshire Bedrock Aquifer Assessment was designed to provide information that can be used by co mmunities, industry, profes ­.

Bangalore’s hard-rock aquifers exhibit high spatial variability in hydraulic conductivity and specific yield. The portions of its aquifers that are deeper – with fractured fresh rock – have very low hydraulic conductivity, while shallower portions, or ‘weathered zones,’ have slightly enhanced conductivity.

The entire district is mainly covered by the hard rock regions and the groundwater occurs in the weathered part of the hard rocks, fractures, fissures and joints (CGWB ). The aquifers range from Archaean to Recent allu-vium.

The ground water level in this district varies according to the formation of rocks. The reduced water. aquifers exists in watershed are classified in to; Phreatic aquifers, depth range from 2 to 29 m and contain water during monsoon season, discharge ranged from negligible to litres per minute.

The yield of large diameter wells tapping the weathered mantle of crystalline rocks ranges from to m3/day for aAuthor: M. Panneer, R. Sivakumar. Each of the aquifer is typical in its water bearing characteristics and quality aspects. Due to complex and erratic nature of ground water occurrence in hard rock terrains, ground water developments without the necessary pre-drilling hydrogeological investigations (Olutoyin.

A, et al, ) usually results in by: 2. Open wells in Bangalore have mostly dried up due to increase in paved surfaces and popularity of borewells. But if shallow aquifers are replenished, as in the case of APR, open wells can become a cheaper, long-lasting water source.

Last June, APR community dug its first open well. An aquifer is a subsurface layer of permeable formation that can store as well as yield groundwater economically to the well tapping it.

In India, broadly two groups of rock formations, viz. porous formations and fissured formations, have been identified as aquifers, depending on their characteristically different hydraulics of ground water.

The water bearing and yield characteristics in hard rock are primarily controlled by the extent of weathering and fracturing. In limestone areas, solution cavities impart secondary porosity.

Data collected from boreholes in fractured-rock aquifers, however, may yield ambiguous interpretations because a borehole acts as a high permeability pathway that connects fractures, which previously were unconnected. Aquifers - Definition, Glossary, Details - Oilgae. Aquifer - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - An aquifer is an underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock or unconsolidated materials (gravel, sand, silt, or clay) from which groundwater can be usefully extracted using water well.

The study of water flow in aquifers and the characterization of aquifers is called hydrogeology. An increase in yield is achieved for each location due to the larger pumped drawdowns for the inverted wells.

Yields for the conventional wells are between and m 3 /d; for the replacement inverted wells the yield for one well is m 3 /d, the other four wells can provide m 3 /d ( cusecs). Pumped drawdowns increase by Cited by: All six wells were completed in fractured-bedrock aquifers--five in coal-bearing shale, siltstone, sandstone, limestone, and coal of Pennsylvanian and Permian age and one in limestone of Cambrian age.

The wells were pumped 24 times during at rates from to 14 gallons per minute during tests lasting from 22 to minutes.

Examine a sample of the deepest rock. Find from well diggers how hard the rock is.Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths.

A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often led to unnecessary recurring expenditures and waste of time, something that could have been avoided by a systematic and proper.Dug wells and bore wells in hard rock aquifers of Visakhapatnam District, Andhra Pradesh – a comparative study.
