- A method for predicting ground‐water levels in the glacial‐outwash deposits in the Ohio River valley near Louisville involves development of curves by graphical correlation to define the effects of winter precipitation and winter temperature on recharge to the water table, and to determine the decline of the water table as water leaks into the Ohio River. Recharge occurs in the winter when evaporation and transpiration are at a minimum and when the soil is at or near field capacity. Several months is required for the water to percolate through about 60 feet of alluvium to reach the water table.
