Water Levels in an Abandoned Quarry
Voluntary Assessment of Groundwater Hydrology
This project was concerned with an abandoned quarry that was turned into a park. The quarry had been about 100 feet deep at its deepest point, and required extensive dewatering during its operation. A municipality purchased the property and planned to make it into a park. In order to establish a final grading plan, it was necessary to predict how high the water level would rise, and how much the lake level could be expected to fluctuate in response to short-term and seasonal hydrologic conditions.
