Implementation of hydrogeological and hydrological monitoring in the Czech Republic
Lenka Mertova, Michal Vokurka
This paper describes the current procedure of monitoring surface water, groundwater in boreholes and house wells near highway and bypass construction sites in the Czech Republic. The subject of this borehole and house well groundwater monitoring is to keep track of its quality by performing chemical analysis in a certified laboratory and its quantity by measuring groundwater level. With surface water, only quantity is monitored by performing chemical analysis in a certified laboratory. The analysis results are processed in text processors and spreadsheets. In regular intervals final reports with clear results are created and handed to an accountable person, who is representing the construction. The results are stored in an archive for an eventual control of the course of monitoring and possible changes. Monitoring is an important part of preventing the water source pollution or even its loss. These are changes, which could be caused by the highway or bypass construction. This contribution describes the procedure of acquiring water samples from hydrogeological and hydrological objects and also possible contaminants and it´s limits are described.
