English term or phrase: water table
ouvrage de jardinage, partie drainage
explique que le WATER TABLE est cette partie du sous-sol généralement envahie par l'eau 6 mois de l'année - et que si trop près de la surface, il va falloir évacuer l'excédent d'eau
n'y a-t-il rien d'autre que NAPPE PHRÉATIQUE comme traduction ?
c'est peut-être de l'ignorance de ma part, mais j'ai tendance à situer ça plus profondément (que dans un jardin-il en parle comme si c'était courant)
merci
