ABSTRACT
By striking Valley Ceplea and storage upstream of dams the hydro mass of slag and ash from CET Turceni (concentration c 1/10), has substantially changed the hydrology and hydrogeology in the respective river basin, particularly quantitative and qualitative.
Most surface water is collected in ponds created retentions. Groundwater is fueled by powerful heads of the slope layer, creating a radially leak oriented towards the meadows of the Jiu river, with a stream much increased compared to that existing before the commissioning of the Power Plant. There were surface springs on the slope of valleys supplied with water from the tailings pond Ceplea.
This paper studies modifications that occurred into the groundwater regime from Ceplea Valley basin and adjacent areas by arranging the ash and slag deposit of Turceni.
