Abstract
    The hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry of the dune area at Wenduine and the polders behind it have been investigated. Of special interest are the lowlying polders at Uitkerke, that are situated at the flow lines’ end. For the purpose of a nature restoration project, that will be implemented soon, a hydrogeological investigation is currently being carried out in the core of these lowlying polders. Insight in the overal hydrogeological functioning of the system has been obtained beforehand. The general hydrogeological setting will be the subject of this contribution. The geometry of the groundwater reservoir in the dune area and polders has been established. Groundwater flow has been determined. The groundwater chemistry has been studied by means of resistivity loggings in boreholes and by groundwater analysis. The interpretation of the both vertically and laterally strongly differentiated groundwater salinity is based on the hydrogeological history of the area.
