Localisation of a Reactive Transport Zone in a Saturated Karstic Conduit Deduced from Natural and Artificial Tracer Tests

Abstract : For groundwater resources managers, flow modeling is a useful tool to investigate sustainable scenarios of water use. However, in karstic aquifers, the quality of scenarios is limited by the difficulties of locating and describing the position, geometry and possible time evolution of conduits. The location of conduits in the karstic aquifer of the "Val d'Orléans" (France) were defined using 200 boreholes, surface collapses and 24 artificial tracer tests, which facilitated the development of a simplified conceptual model of flow in the saturated conduits and the surrounding rocks. 68 logs present voids > 50 cm and locate a highly porous zone around 80 m a.s.l. with voids that average 3.5 meter in diameter. In this saturated conduit, 1D quantitative interpretation of artificial tracer tests validate the proposed conceptual model of a saturated conduit under pressure, with an efficient section about 10 m2 an input flow about 3.1 m3/s with 2.9 m3/s flowing from the conduit toward the surrounding rock before arriving at the Loiret Spring. The conceptual model of flow and the previous water chemical analysis show that the transported elements in the groundwater react and dissolve carbonate rocks, mainly inside the conduit, and that this may increase the diameter of the conduit zone by an estimated 40 cm in 100 years
