In [2] Barenblatt e.a. introduced a fluid model for groundwater flow in fissurised porous media. The system consists of two diffusion equations for the groundwater levels in, respectively, the porous bulk and the system of cracks. The equations are coupled by a fluid exchange term. Numerical evidence in [2, 8] suggests that the penetration depth of the fluid increases dramatically due to the presence of cracks and that the smallness of certain parameter values play a key role in this phenomenon. In the present paper we give precise estimates for the penetration depth in terms of the smallness of some of the parameters.
