capillary water

capillary water

[′kap·ə‚ler·ē ‚wȯd·ər]
(hydrology)
Soil water held by capillarity as a continuous film around soil particles and in interstices between particles above the phreactic line.

At the same time, by lowering the underground water level, part of the terrain that is now saturated because of the capillary water will pass off to an unsaturated and dry state, thus, with a greatly lowered volumic weight, at about half.
Other successes in filtration include the Tribo-R liquid biofiltration media and the Hydro Switch capillary water mat.
The net effect is that seasonal streams and wetlands could disappear, further stressing perennial rivers with more pollution by removing the capillary water systems that feed them.
Durekovic [12] observed a marked decrease in capillary water suction with an increase in silica fume content for water-cured cement pastes.
