Formation of Ground Water

Formation of Ground Water. Ground water is all water found below ground level on the column / water-saturated zone (zone of saturation). Formed ground water comes from rain water and surface water, which seep (infiltrate) into the initially unsaturated zone (zone of aeration) and then penetrate deeper (percolate) water until it reaches the saturated zone and into ground water.

Ground water is one facet in the hydrological cycle, ie, an event that is always repeated the sequence of stages through which water from the atmosphere to earth and back into the atmosphere: evaporation from land or sea or inland water, condensation to form clouds, outpouring, pelonggokan in tanih or water bodies and the evaporation again (Dictionary of Hydrology, 1987).

From the hydrological cycle can be understood that groundwater interacts with surface water and other components involved in the hydrologic cycle including topography, type of rock cover, land use, vegetation cover, and the man who was in permiukaan. Ground water and surface water are related and interact. Every action (pumping, pollution, etc.) to water the soil will react to the water surface, and vice versa.
