Abstract

A computer model was developed to assist the Southwest Kansas Groundwater Management District No. 3 in the evaluation of applications to appropriate ground water. The model calculated the drawdown due from a proposed well at all existing wells in the section of the proposed well and at all wells in the adjacent eight sections. The depletion expected in the 9-square-mile area due to all existing wells and the proposed well is computed and compared with allowable limits defined by the management district. An optional program permits the evaluation of allowable depletion for one or more townships. All options are designed to run interactively, thus allowing for immediate evaluation of proposed ground-water withdrawals. (USGS)
