<p>Estimation of groundwater table by hydrogeologists in Ghana over the past decades has proven to be difficult due to the dearth of data on piezometric heads from the very few boreholes present to access this data. The importance of this information in infrastructure ...

The removal of groundwater from the subsurface is one of the most common remediation practices in slope stabilization. The use of horizontal drains has often proved to be an efficient and economical dewatering option for slope stability. Despite their frequent ...
