Abstract

Theoretical drawdown due to simulated pumpage was determined for a site near Siloam, Kentucky by using a digital ground-water-flow model. The maximum sustained yield of water from the single well was shown to be less than 900 gallons per minute, and, for a simulated pumping rate of 450 gallons per minute from each of several wells, the optimum placement for either minimum water-level drawdown or minimum spacing of multiple wells was found to be in a line parallel to and at a distance of about 370 to 600 feet from the Ohio River. An analytical method was used to verify the optimum placement of wells determined by the digital model. (Woodard-USGS)
