The UniLaSalle Hydrogeological facility enjoys a strategic location in the Beauvais countryside.
It brings together tools that enable students to become proficient in the disciplines of surface hydrological systems, groundwater and soil. Our chalky, water-bearing region provides the perfect location for examining the relationship between surface and groundwater. It is the ideal setting for our researchers and students.
The facility’s 24 boreholes are used to monitor the Beauvais-Tillé airport industrial plateau, La Liovette dry valley, Le Thérain perennial river valley, the agricultural plateau, and exchanges between the plateaux and valleys. Analyses carried out in this facility enable students to shed light on how water circulates in the soil and rock, to monitor its quality and level according to seasonal fluctuations or weather patterns, and therefore plan ahead and act to protect the resource.
