The Ground Water Recharge Based on The Value of Soil Permeability

Juandi M, Riad Syech


This study presents an approach method to determine groundwater recharge based on the value of permeability. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between groundwater recharge to the value of permeability. The method used in this research is experiment method, i.e. measurement of the value of groundwater infiltration and permeability. Administrative area of research is in Pekanbaru, Riau Province of Indonesia. The result obtained from this research is the empirical relationship between the values of underground water catchment to the value of soil permeability i.e.  Log(R) = 2.919K0.142.
