regionally confined aquifer with a transmissivity of 1589 ft

^{2}/day
and a storativity of 0.0005. The planned pumping rate is 325 gal/min.
There are several nearby wells tapping the same aquifer, and the project
manager needs to know if the new well will cause significant
interference with these wells. Compute the theoretical drawdown caused
by the new well after 30 days of continuous pumping at the following
distances: 50, 150, 250, 500, 1000, 3000, 6000, and 10,000 ft. (This
problem and the following problem can readily be solved using Excel with
the algorithm that is suggested in Analysis K. The repetitive nature of
the calculations is especially suited to a spreadsheet solution.)

depth to water was 55 ft. The test well was screened from 82 to 117 ft.
It was pumped at a rate of 560 gal/min. Drawdown was measured in an
observation well that was also screened from 82 to 117 ft and was
located 82 ft away from the pumping well. The following time-drawdown
data were obtained:...

(A)
Plot the time-drawdown data on 3 × 5 cycle logarithmic paper. Compute
the value of the storativity and transmissivity of the aquifer using the
graphical method for leaky aquifers. Find the vertical hydraulic
conductivity of the confining layer.(B) Compute the value of aquifer
storativity and transmissivity of the aquifer using the Hantush
inflection-point method.

Get solution **5.18** Type curves
will be necessary for the solution of many of these problems. Type
curves can be constructed from the data in the appendices, although this
process is laborious. Type curves have been published for a number of
aquifer tests on confined aquifers. The curves were derived by, among
others, the Theis method, the two methods for leaky artesian aquifers
given in this chapter, and the Cooper-Bredehoeft- Papadopulos method.
