Merseyside Groundwater - Regional overview and specific example
Merseyside, located in the north-west of England is situated on an aquifer, which
for 150 years or so was heavily exploited. The water table was drawn considerably
below its natural level. Upon near cessation of pumping, the aquifer has undergone
recharge, which has influenced the area's underground railway.
