ARTIFICIAL RECHARGE – MEASUREMENT OF SOIL INFILTRATION IN ROŽNOV POD RADHOŠTĚM
The purpose of this study is to evaluates the potential for infiltration in a study area – Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, the Czech Republic. These results are important for future design of artificial recharge as a method to store water underground in times of water surplus. A total of six measurements of infiltration were made using a double-ring infiltrometer on selected, prospective sites for future application of artificial recharge. The results of infiltration tests were analyzed based on Philip`s model. The steady soil infiltration rate ranged from 28 cm.h-1 to 70.38 cm.h-1 and cumulative soil infiltration ranged from 58 cm to 68 cm.
