During groundwater extraction from drinking water wells in the floodplain forests at Petronell a measuring program for relevant parameters of the site and stand water balance (soil, plant, atmosphere) was conducted. By these means an evironmentally sound regime of groundwater extraction within the well field should be designed. Negative physiological side-effects upon the tree species (Populus x euramericana) should be prevented.
