Groundwater Management in Central Berlin
Abstract:The Spreebogen area in central Berlin is the site of a large and complex tunnelling project that calls for three parallel tunnels to serve long distance trains, a subway line and a roadway. The tunnels for the long distance and subway rail lines are shield tunnels, while the road tunnel is being built by the open-pit technique. Extensive environmental impact studies were conducted for this large project to assess the existing situation and forecast the impact of construction on the surface water and groundwater. The Tiergarten Park, with its groundwater-dependent vegetation has been given particular attention in these studies.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
SEI is printed in Switzerland; ISSN 1016-8664; E-ISSN 1683-0350
