Groundwater is one of the forms in which water is found throughout the nature. Groundwater movement in natural conditions, but mainly in terms modified by hydrotechnical works, or whatever they are, forms the subject of groundwater hydraulics. Solving the various issues found in practice constitutes the technical and applicative part with a vast coverage of groundwater. The construction engineer performances regarding the buildings foundation is tightly connected with the groundwater level, especially in areas where the groundwater level is high. The paper, show computing models, based on boundary element method, which provides variants for lowering the groundwater level under the foundation terrain. The paper also show a case study for the how to prevent the possible damages that underground water could have on construction and especially on their foundations, in order to ensure their proper operation.

Keywords: building foundations, flow model, urbanization, groundwater level
