Exploitation of groundwaters resources in Lublin in 1955-2015.
A b s t r a c t. The paper presents issues related to the changes of groundwater withdrawal in Lublin in the 20th and 21st centuries and their consequences. The research has been based on the analysis of published and archival materials of the Department of Hydrology, Maria Curie Skłodowska University in Lublin, and the Municipal Water and Sewerage Company in Lublin. The collected data have allowed for the preparation of groundwater contour maps for several hydrodynamic situations in 1955–2015. Assessment of the range and depth of the depression cone in zones of water intakes and in the city in the last 70 years was determined by comparison of the present- day groundwater contour map and the map for 1955. High water withdrawal in the 1980-ties has resulted in lowering of the groundwater table. In the last decades, after the marketization of water prices and economic changes, decrease of water withdrawal took place, which in the case of higher precipitation resulted in increased groundwater levels..
