Transport And Transformation Of Chemical Components In The Groundwater Flow System Of Jakarta Metropolitan Area


The aim og this study is to examine the transport and transformation of chemical components within the groundwater flow in Jakarta area, and to evaluate the effects of accelerated urbanization on it.
The collected data showed that the current hydraulic potential in the Jakarta metropolitan area is below sea level because of prior excess abstraction of groundwater. The distibution of CT and Mn2 concentration in groundwater suggests that the decline in hydraulic potential has caused the intrusion of seawater to shallow groundwater and the movement of shallow groundwater into deep groundwater. It implies an accumulation of contaminants in deep aquifers. On the other hands. The presentation of NO-3-N in groundwater is suggested to be attenuated by the prosses of denitrification and dilution in the coastal area.
