The effect of water table fluctuations on water quality: A case history
Keywords:water quality, water table positions, hydrograph
The effect of watertable fluctuations on groundwater salinity is observed for three well- waters near Visakhapatnam, India. The electrical relativity water sample in the well is taken to represent the salinity of water. A correlation between the electrical sensitivities of groundwater samples and the corresponding water table positions over a period of fifteen months is brought out. A peculiar in-phase relation between the water level hydrograph and the salinity curve is recorded, the explanation for which is given in terms of the hydrogeology of the layers constituting the 'host' rock.
