A confined aquifer has a source of recharge. Hydraulic conductivity, K for the aquifer is 50 m/day. The piezometric head in two wells 1000 m apart is 45 m and 40 m respectively, from a common datum. The average thickness of the aquifer is 30 m, and the average width of aquifer is 5 km. Compute the rate of flow through the aquifer (assume no dispersion or diffusion through the aquifer).

    It's simply based on the Darcy's law. We have, K= 50m/day hydraulic head (Or hydraulic gradient) = dh/dL = (45-40)/1000= 5/1000= 0.005 Area of the aquifer(A) = 30×5000= 150000m...
