Water that seeped or oozed through a porous soil.
The act or process of seeping; percolation.
a fluid that seeps out of a container; as, seepage from a reservoir.
Percolation of water through the soil from unlined canals, ditches, laterals, watercourses, or water storage facilities.
The rate at which the fluid being pumped accumulates at the point of suction. Slow seepage allows air into the pump suction, which causes some types of pump to lose their prime.
The movement of water through the soil Seepage adversely affects the specified use.
The slow movement of gravitational water through soil and rock.
Movement of water through a porous medium, often used in the context of water movement from a groundwater system to surface water, or vice versa. For example, seepage of groundwater into a drainageway or seepage of water out the bottom of a canal or under a dam.
The infiltration of water downwards or laterally into soil or substrata from a source of supply such as a reservoir, irrigation canal or channel.
Small quantities of water percolating through a soil deposit or soil structure.
The appearance and disappearance of water at the ground surface. Seepage designates the type of movement of water in saturated material. It is different from percolation , which is the predominant type of movement of water in unsaturated material.
water that trickles or leaks through sediment
The movement of water into or through a porous material. Seepage occurs from canals, ditches, and other water storage facilities. It sometimes is used to describe water escaping from municipal landfill sites.
The infiltration and percolation of surface water from overland flow, ditches, channels, ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, or other surface water bodies.
The slow movement of water through the pore spaces of a solid material. This term is also applied to a loss of water by infiltration through the bottom of a stream, canal, irrigation ditch, reservoir or other body of water.
The gradual movement of water into, through or from a porous medium. Also the loss of water by infiltration into the soil from a canal, ditches, laterals, watercourse, reservoir, storage facilities, or other body of water, or from a field.
(1) The slow movement of water into or out of a body of surface or subsurface water. (2) The loss of water by infiltration into the soil from a canal, ditch, lateral, watercourse, reservoir, storage facility, or other body of water, or from a field.
( Ped.) a general term for the flow of water below the surface of the soil in contradiction to surface run-off it includes both infiltration and perdcolation.
The slow process of water passage into a structure.
The interstitial movement of water that may take place through a dam, its foundation, or abutments.
Percolation of underground water through the banks and into a stream or other body of water.
The amount of water that leaks through a structure, such as a dam.
Liquid which moves slowly down through cracks, pores, and interstices of the soil. Leaky manure storages may allow manure to seep through the soil to the groundwater. Earthen basins and lagoons almost always have some seepage and, thus, should be lined carefully constructed to minimize seepage of manure into the soil. Seepage rates are usually expressed as flow volume per unit time.
(1) The slow movement of water through small cracks, pores, interstices of a material into or out of a body of surface or subsurface water. (2) The loss of water by infiltration into the soil from a canal, reservoir, or other body of water, or from a field. Seepage is generally expressed as flow volume per unit time. During the process of priming of canals, the loss is called absorption loss.
The slow movement of water to small cracks, pores etc in the surface of unsaturated material into or out of a body of surface or subsurface water.
The percolation of water through the soil from unlined channels, ditches, water courses, and water storage facilities.
and concentrated subsurface drainage are indicated by springs, sag ponds, or moist areas on open slopes, and seepage sites along road cuts. The locations of these areas of concentrated subsurface flow should be noted on maps and profiles as potential sites of active, unstable ground. Chatwin and others, 1994.
