Abstract

Groundwater as an alternative source still does not contribute to the water supply in area of Parit Raja because of the limitation of water availability in the ground. This lacking of groundwater could be caused by the circumstance that the top layer of soil is dominated by clay in which its permeability is small, so the water is difficult to infiltrate the ground. The recharge well technique will be designed based on the flat area problems, layer of bedrock, flow water table and low infiltration rate. According to the assessment of subsurface layer, presented that the study area promised good prospects for the ground water recharge system to increase the capability of groundwater. The recharge system also will contribute to the drainage system by reducing the volume of rainfall runoff using the recharge well technique.
