Yoshinari HIROSHIRO, Masataka MATSUMOTO, Akihiko KINOSHITA, Atushi TSUTSUMI, Hydrological Analysis of Interaction between Surface and Subsurface Water in the Middle Basin of the Obaru River, Western Fukuoka, Japan, International Symposium on Earth Science and Technology 2017, 2017.11, To reproduce an accurate hydrological cycle condition quantitatively with numerical analysis model, it is essential to incorporate hydraulic geological conditions of the investigated area as clearly as possible. In the previous research, although the river flow discharge was calculated by the TSUTSUMI-JINNO model as will hereinafter be described, the numerical value of the river flow discharge at the most downstream observation point was considerably higher than the observation value. Therefore, hydraulic geological conditions of the basin had to be reconsidered. In this paper, in order to reproduce the actual surface water-groundwater relationship, a new model is developed by adding the following the two conditions: 1)the existence of the former channel of the Obaru river, and 2)phenomenon of groundwater flow out to river as gaining river(stream) is also taken into account the phenomenon of river water flow in to groundwater as losing river(stream) as well. As the results, considering the two phenomena, the calculated river flow discharge and its observed value showed good correlation at the observation point. To reproduce real hydrological cycle condition quantitatively, it is important that evaluating the accurate hydraulic geological conditions in the investigated area are incorporated in the model..

Yoshinari HIROSHIRO, Keisuke KONISHI, Estimation of amount of groundwater pumping discharge and its effect on salinization of groundwater around Ito Campus, Kyushu University, MEMOIRS OF THE FACULTY OF ENGINEERING KYUSHU UNIVERSITY, Vol.76, No.1, 2016.07, Kyushu University has been constructing its new campus (Ito Campus) in an area spanning the Motooka-Kuwabara district in Fukuoka City. Agriculture is active in this area and a large amount of groundwater is used for irrigation and horticultural facilities. In recent years, land development for house building has proceeded and one of groundwater recharge sources, paddy area has decreased. Therefore, it is the urgent need to grasp the total amount of groundwater discharge by pumping wells. It was estimated that dividing into three usage ways; for living, agriculture and business. The result shows the daily average groundwater discharge is approximately 635m3 and the percentages of groundwater usage are 59 percent for agriculture, 38 percent for living and 3 percent for business. Next, saline-affected groundwater by effects of groundwater pumping was evaluated from value changes of EC (electrical conductivity), Na and Cl at the wells for agriculture. Consequently, it was revealed that groundwater pumping has an effect on salinization of groundwater and its influences were reflected on the groundwater quality about one month later..

1. 広城 吉成, 小西 啓介, 寺嶋 健人, 堤 敦, Quantitative Analysis of Nutrient Inflow from River and Groundwater to Imazu Bay in Fukuoka, Japan, ICEWRM 2016:18th International Conference on Environment and Water Resource Management, 2016.05, Imazu Bay plays an important role for endangered species such as horseshoe crabs and black-faced spoonbills that stay in the bay for spawning or passing the winter. However, this bay is semi-enclosed with slow water exchange, which could lead to eutrophication under the condition of excess nutrient inflow to the bay. Therefore, quantification of nutrient inflow is of great importance. Generally, analysis of nutrient inflow to bays takes into consideration nutrient inflow from only river, but that from groundwater should not be ignored for more accurate results.
The main objective of this study is to estimate amounts of nutrient inflow from river and groundwater to Imazu Bay by analyzing water budget in Zuibaiji River Basin and loads of T-N, T-P, NO3-N and NH4-N. The water budget computation in the basin is performed using groundwater recharge model and quasi three-dimensional two-phase groundwater flow model, and the multiplication of the measured amount of nutrient inflow with the computed discharge gives the total amount of nutrient inflow to the bay. In addition, in order to evaluate nutrient inflow to the bay, the result is compared with nutrient inflow from geologically similar river basins.
The result shows that the discharge is 3.50×107 m3/year from the river and 1.04×107 m3/year from groundwater. The submarine groundwater discharge accounts for approximately 23% of the total discharge, which is large compared to the other river basins. It is also revealed that the total nutrient inflow is not particularly large. The sum of NO3-N and NH4-N loadings from groundwater is less than 10% of that from the river because of denitrification in groundwater. Shin Seibu Sewage Treatment Plant located below the observation points discharges treated water of 15,400 m3/day and plans to increase it. However, the loads of T-N and T-P from the treatment plant are 3.9 mg/L and 0.19 mg/L, so that it does not contribute a lot to eutrophication.
