ABSTRACT
The goal of the contribution is by means of numerical modelling of groundwater flow to define the optimum water pumping from snow-up lakes in mountain region of High Tatras. For design of such lakes (gravel pits) and determination of changes in groundwater level regime when pumping the water from them a conceptual model has been elaborated by means of numerical modelling using finite element method for groundwater flow simulations [1]. After calibration and verification process an unsteady groundwater flow model was the best tool for optimisation of surface and subsurface water system with respect to the environment in National Park of High Tatras. Contribution has to be considered as an applied numerical modelling case study for groundwater flow, its analysis, prognosis and determination of pumping scenarios on groundwater level regime in mountainous region. For finite element modelling a TRIWACO simulation package of groundwater flow has been used [2].

Keywords: optimum water pumping for snow-up of hills, groundwater level regime, finite element modelling
