Chemical and isotopic study of the impact on groundwater environment by an large underground facility

Iwatsuki, Teruki  ; Kato, Toshihiro; Nakata, Kotaro*; Hasegawa, Takuma*

Water chemistry, isotopes and chlorofluorocarbons in groundwater down to a depth of 500 m were monitored in the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU), Japan. The monitoring of water chemistry for more than 10 years shows the increase of shallow water infiltration in UHFD at depths between 200 - 400 m. Based on 3H and CFCs concentrations the mixing proportion of shallow groundwater was estimated up to about 50 %. On the other hand groundwater in LSFD at the depth of 500 m was identified relatively isolated condition from the hydraulic disturbance by the facility construction. The residence time of the isolated groundwater was estimated 18 - 25 ka by $$^{14}$$C.
