English term or phrase: Water strikes

"When drilling a borehole water strike may be recorded. This is the level at which water is first encountered. Comparisons of water strike to rest water level can be used to identify perched water table (strike > level) or confined conditions (strike < level)." in http://www.bgs.ac.uk/research/groundwater/datainfo/levels/te...

Par exemple pour le BRGM: "niveau de la première arrivée d'eau":
