Groundwater Modelling for Urban Water Management in Gouda, the Netherlands

More Info


In 2014, a project, Living Lab Land Subsidence, is established to find a sustainable solution for land subsidence problem in Gouda. Being a part of the project, this research focuses on building a high-resolution groundwater model (2m*2m) by describing the model (such as recharge, leaky sewerage pipes) in local details. Water management strategies can be tested in the model to observe their effects on the groundwater levels. Then this model can be linked to a land subsidence model for further study on land subsidence under different (ground)water management scenarios.
