Piezometric Measurements at the Mol-Dessel Site. Site Characterisation for Disposal of Category A Waste

Serge Labat

    Research outputpeer-review


    Since May 2000 SCK•CEN measures monthly the piezometric levels in the framework of the "Site characterisation at the nuclear site Mol-Dessel for disposal of category A waste". The network currently comprises 48 sites: 43 piezometer sites and at 5 sites (sites 43, 44, 45, 46, and 57) the water level of a watercourse is monitored. The observed groundwater levels can be used for the comparison and verification of water heads calculated with the hydrogeological models and for the analysis of the temporal and spatial evolution of the measured piezometric levels. Therefore, continuity in the measurements is an essential requirement as well as the maintenance of the piezometers. The work is performed as part of the programmes on a)geological disposal of high-level and long-lived waste (category B and C waste), and b)short-lived low and intermediate level waste (category A waste), that is carried out by ONDRAF/NIRAS, the Belgian agency for radioactive waste and fissile materials. This report analyses the evolution of the piezometric levels from May 2000 until December 2007.
