Abstract

Summary

The termination of industrial activities may have side effects with harmful impact on civil infrastructure. The drastic increase of ground water level may endanger the quality of the fresh water resources and the basement stabilities of the surface infrastructures. Geoelecric survey is an effective method in solving environmental or geotechnical problems in urban areas.

This study introduces two case histories on geophysical characterization of sites that are endangered with the reappearance of karstic water. Validated with drill hole data the subsurface structures were reliably imaged. Extended with laboratory analysis of water and mud samples the source of water contamination was identified. The successful designation of subsurface aquifers and flow directions gave useful information for mitigation planning.
