Hydrogeological Object - Abstract - Spatial object type

Definition: An abstract class for man-made facilities or natural features that have an interaction with the hydrogeological system.

Description: Hydrogeological objects may be natural (eg. spring) or the manmade (eg. wells). The vast majority of hydrogeological objects are manmade.

Definition: An index value or interval of values determining the potential degree of aquifer risk arising from the geological structure, hydrogeological conditions and the existence of real or potential source of contamination.

Description: A single value should be used if it is determined directly from the DRASTIC method. If attribute data comes from another data source which is expressed by categorized items, for example: low, moderate or high, interval should be used expressed by lowest and highest value of category. EXAMPLE: ‘Moderate’ means interval from 101 to 140.

Valuetype: QuantityValue

Definition: The volume of an incompressible fluid that will flow in unit time through a unit cube of a porous substance across which a unit pressure difference is maintained.

Description: The parameter represents the hydraulic conductivity of a rock container. Describes the ease with which water can move through pore spaces or fractures. It depends on the intrinsic permeability of the material and on the degree of saturation.NOTE: Because of their high porosity and permeability, sand and gravel have higher hydraulic conductivity than clay or unfractured granite aquifers.

Definition: A saturated, but poorly permeable bed that impedes groundwater movement.

Description: It does not yield water freely to wells, but may transmit appreciable water to or from adjacent aquifers and, where sufficiently thick, may constitute an important ground-water storage unit. Aquitards are characterized by values of leakance that may range from relatively low to relatively high. A really extensive aquitard of relatively low leakance may function regionally as boundaries of aquifer flow systems.
