"Water Table" - TVP website

Hi!

On The TVP site, City Systems: "For example, in the agricultural belt the computers could automatically
monitor and maintain the water table, soil chemistry, and coordinate the
planting and harvesting of crops."

The "water table" in Portuguese is called "lençol freático" and this is the water in the saturated zone. Maybe what Jacque means here is the "ground water"? I wonder this because when he explains that we can have sensors on the ground (and he shows with the fingers) and when the water goes bellow the sensors the automated system would correct it, he is talking about very close to the surface right? where the roots are? And the freatic water will never be seen as that water, at least by a non-experienced portuguese :D

Shall I translate it as groundwater?
