Total hydraulic head (ht): ht = z + h p Where: z = elevation hp = pressure head 9 hp ht a z

datum FOR462: Watershed Science & Management Darcys Law Darcys Law defines groundwater flow: dht Q =kv A dx where: Q is discharge (L3 T-1) kv is the hydraulic conductivity (L T-1) A is area of flow (L2), and dht/dx is the gradient of pressure, or head

Groundwater Development Multiple pumping wells can cause interference between cones of depression Extraction should not exceed recharge Water mining Extraction may cause subsidence Recharge zones should be protected Ensure adequate water flow Ensure quality

Extraction may affect surface water Many watershed management actions are taken to protect quality 17 FOR462: Watershed Science & Management Gaining and Losing Streams 18 Dingman Gaining stream Effluent stream
