Aquifer Hydraulics
1010402Aquifer HydraulicsOne of the key pieces of information hydrogeologists need to solve problems in the field of hydrogeology is an understanding of the hydraulic properties of an aquifer. Many questions, such as, how long will it take water from the recharge area to reach a production well? How long will it take a contaminant to move from point A to point B? If this production well is activated, how far will the cone of depression reach? And how many other wells will be affected? What distribution of hydraulic properties should be assigned to the layers within this groundwater-flow model? In order to answer such questions, it is necess…
