Document Type: Journal Paper
A formula for channel seepage to a leaky artesian aquifer and for the resulting piezometric surface is presented. A potential function accounting for excess irrigation and leaching water applied to agricultural lands is proposed. Using this function in combination with conventional well potential theory, a method for designing intercepting drainage wells for such an aquifer underlying irrigated lands is described.
