Abstract

The Mrigadayavan Palace Foundation aims to restore the Palace to its original condition by 2024. However, brackish groundwater prevents the restoration of the Palace grounds. By analyzing salinity data and interviewing community members, we found the likely cause of the brackish groundwater are the jetties feeding seawater to nearby mangroves. We recommend filling the jetties, spreading awareness of high local salinity, and implementing desalination methods to support the restoration efforts of the Foundation.
