Impacts of Climate Change on Groundwater Quality
About 85 % of Swiss drinking water is ground water (about 50 % spring water and about 50 % pumped ground water). Of the pumped ground water, about 50 % is recharged by losing rivers. Rivers in Switzerland tend to become warmer at a rate of about 1 °C/20 years. The same tendency has recently been shown to occur also in ground water recharged by rivers. Warming effects water quality in various ways. We found out that in the last 50 or so years, oxygen concentrations in ground water decrease because of the warming-up. This can lead in the future to unwanted changes in groundwater quality, which will be investigated in the next years.
