During construction of the station, it was necessary to lower the groundwater level at the top of the Thanet Sands to 84m above site datum. (a) Assuming that the groundwater level in the Thames Gravels is unaffected, and that the groundwater level at the top of the Chalk is reduced by only 35kPa, construct a table for the
