Study of hydrogeology in the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory Project; Hydrogeological modeling at site scale in Phase II

Onoe, Hironori ; Kosaka, Hiroshi*; Takeuchi, Ryuji ; Saegusa, Hiromitsu

Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) Project is being carried out by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in the Cretaceous Toki granite in the Tono area, central Japan. The MIU Project has three overlapping phases: Surface-based Investigation (Phase I), Construction (Phase II) and Operation (Phase III). In this study, calibration of hydrogeological model and groundwater flow simulation using the data obtained by the Phase I and Phase II were carried out in order to develop the methodology for construction and update of hydrogeological model on Site Scale. As a result, hydrogeological model on Site Scale, which is able to simulate comprehensively the obtained data regarding groundwater pressure distribution before excavation of the MIU facilities, hydraulic responses and inflow volume during excavation of the MIU facilities, was constructed.
