Abstract:
The objective of this study was to monitor groundwater in the Mahasarakham University, Khmriang Campus, Thailand where rapidly urbanization area. A contour map was constructed for evaluating ground level and water table level of the study area. The observed wells were installed cover the study area for 9 wells. Soil properties of the wells were investigated. The water level and water quality of the observed wells were weekly recorded from April 2006-April 2008. The results showed that the water table varied during 3-4 m below the land surface. The groundwater levels were 2-4 m during January to May, 1-2 m during May to October and 2-3 m during November to December. Soil properties along the observed wells from land surface were sand loam, silty loam, sandy clay and clayed silty. NaCl of each well during the study varied about 50 to 150 ppm.
