Recent studies reveal that karst aquifers represent a significant part of the Swiss groundwater reserve (120 km3) and resource (8.4 km3/year), although they only extend over 20% of the territory. On the one hand, high infiltration rates and large permeabilities of karstified rocks make karst aquifers highly interesting for water management. On the other hand, karst...
