SYNOPSIS

This talk presents some concepts of dewatering and groundwater control in underground related works. This class of problem is getting to be very challenging due to proximity of existing buildings, stringent project requirements and complex geological conditions. A brief survey of dewatering techniques and control of groundwater inflow will be discussed.  In some cases, pretreatment designed and tested may be meeting the design objectives, however, the reality of the performance may not measure up to the desired expectations during the works. This may lead to undesirable impacts and the need to improve the situation at the site. To address the above concerns more elaborate methods of treatment to curtail or eliminate the problems will have to be carried out. Some specific methods of control will be briefly discussed.
