The boundary integral equation method (BIEM) is used to solve free surface ground-water problems. The formulation includes those problems in which the domain of the solution is infinite. Two methods are presented which treat infinite domains efficiently using the BIEM. These methods are illustrated by a two-dimensional recharge problem and by the flow through a dike on a pervious foundation. The BIEM solutions are compared to experimental data. Excellent agreement is observed.
