|Title:||Reclaimed lands as potential groundwater source in Singapore||Authors:||Tan, Kiondi Jou Yee.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering||Issue Date:||2011||Abstract:||This report aims to consolidate what the student has learnt and experienced throughout her progress of the project. A pilot field study marks the purpose of evaluating the feasibility of the soil for ground storage of water. Apparently, it is done to assess the sustainable groundwater recharge and abstraction rates from the site. Water demand, both existing and projected were extensively researched, as well as the site layout, including water needs and sources, locations and outlets interfaces with the sea. Trends on rainfall were analysed as provided by the hydrological data of Jurong Island. They were reviewed to verify potential rainwater yield and subsequently groundwater abstraction. Additionally, the evaporation data for Singapore was also applied to the site to enhance hydrological analyses. Site soil characteristics were explored to determine the soil’s suitability for water storage and abstraction, in particular by determining its conductivity and the extent of the sand layer over the site. Finally, potential sustainable quality yield and cost-effective schemes for the abstraction of groundwater will be recommended without causing long term adverse environmental impacts on the site.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/44547||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
