Zone of saturation : That part of the earth crust where the functional interstices of permeable rock or earth are completely filled with water under positive hydrostatic pressure, that is, pressure in excess of atmospheric pressure. It is that portion of the earth crust that supplies water to springs and wells and which contains the groundwater. Strictly speaking, part of the capillary zone is also saturated.
