Abstract

An analog model was used to evaluate ground-water conditions on the south coast of Puerto Rico. Water levels during a normal period and during an extended drought were simulated. Recharge and discharge values are reported. The model was also used to evaluate the possibilities of using treated waste water to recharge the aquifer. Three methods were considered: infiltration basins, injection, and irrigation. The tests were planned to determine what changes in water levels would result if certain rates of application were used. Because of the limited vertical hydraulic conductivity, irrigation is suggested as the most practical method of waste-water use. (Woodard-USGS)
