Infiltration site suitability, permeability properties, of soil suitable site, double ring, infiltrometer infiltration rate.
Infiltration is the process of penetration of water into the ground surface and the intensity of this process is known as infiltration rate. The infiltration rate is expressed in term of volume of water poured per ground surface per unit of time. Soil erosion, surface runoff & ground water recharge are affected by this process. At a certain moment the maximum infiltration rate can be indicated by the infiltration capacity of soil. Infiltration of water into the soil can be determined by a simple instrument called infiltrometer. The study area to Determination of best suitable site for infiltration well on the basis of infiltration rate of soil to near Ekana Stadium, Sadar Tahsil Lucknw. Experimental work was carried out on clay with medium plasticity clay and sits with low plasticity. Present study double ring infiltrometer was used for measurement. The different soil conditions affect the soil infiltration rate. Infiltration will be maximum at the beginning and it decays exponentially and gets a constant value. Infiltration rate place an important role in generation of runoff volume. The study of infiltration comes in many hydrological problems like runoff estimation soil moisture budgeting and for planning of irrigation.
