In the last decade there has been an increasing number of dewatering projects – notably with major infrastructure projects in the UK such as Crossrail and in the development in the Gulf States. There is a need for broad-based dewatering advice and guidance to make sure the lessons of the past are not forgotten, and the opportunities for the future are recognised. This book covers the design, construction and environmental management of groundwater control and dewatering works for construction projects. It is a practically oriented book, aimed at practising construction professionals – engineers, geologists and hydrogeologists – and Masters level students, and contains several case studies. The new edition covers the principles of groundwater flow in greater detail than previous editions, and presents a greater range of design methods and issues. It includes new chapters on Permeability and Hydraulic Conductivity Groundwater Problems for Excavations in Rock Groundwater Control for Tunnels and Shafts Optimisation of Dewatering Systems Maintenance of Groundwater Lowering Systems; and Case Studies and extensively developed chapters on Principles of Groundwater Flow; Groundwater Models The Need for Groundwater Control Groundwater Problems for Excavations in Soils Control of Surface Water and Groundwater for Excavation Pumps Decommissioning of Groundwater Lowering Systems; and Monitoring of Groundwater Lowering Systems
