operation. One pumping well has been completed and they are seeking approval for
a second well. A Farmer on an adjacent property owns an artesian well. This is a well
that ows freely as the potentiometric surface is greater than the land surface. The
new well can only be installed if it will not adversely impact the farmers well. A
schematic for this is presented in Figure 1. Assume the aquifer is homogeneous and

a. A pumping test was conducted over 100 days with a pump rate of 700 Litres per
minute (700 L/min). Drawdowns have been observed in the monitoring well and
are presented in Table 1 (on page 3).
