For example, Scandinavian tunnels are often designed to allow for a maximum inflow of 2 litres per minute per 100 m length of tunnel, but this limit should be varied depending on local conditions and the consequences of water flow. Rising groundwater in urban environments Many urban centres, including Paris, London, and Tokyo, are currently experiencing a rise in groundwater levels within the ground beneath them. In many cases this change in regional groundwater levels has arisen from the cessation of pumping of groundwater due to closure of industries in the city centre or due to the utilisation of alternative water sources.

During the programme of car park construction in Paris the benefits of contractor-led design has become more apparent, resulting in more efficient design and construction, and tighter control over costs and programme. Constraints frequently encountered in these projects include the preservation of existing trees, protection of existing tunnels and utilities, dewatering and protection of groundwater levels. In some instances where car parks are excavated beneath existing roads, staged construction sequences have been used to maintain traffic flow and minimise the impact of construction on congestion.
