Two wells are drilled 50 m apart in an aquifer which has K = 0.05 cm /s. The original height of the phreatic surface above the aquiclude is 12.2 m. The wells are pumped at a rate of 10 L/s. It is estimated that the effect of the pumping extends a distance of 600 m from the center of the well group. Determine the shape of the drawdown curve. The well diameters are 0.5 m.
