ABSTRACT
The paper was initiated, as a study based on the results developed in the last 10 years in Romania, as applied drainage methods on lowering ascending groundwater’s level, used in residential or commercial areas, roads and access ways subjected of serious buildings or monuments’ damages or landslides. The paper shows how monitoring the works of deep drainage gives an effective control of groundwater level variation and hydro geological conditions of sites. The study includes the results of a comparative data analysis, obtained from direct or remote monitoring, on 8 gravity drainage systems realized so far in Romania.

Keywords: drainage methods, compared improved efficiency, siphon drain system
