The rate of fall of a water table between drains is determined in a Hele-Shaw model, and the results are compared with those obtained by use of the Glover equation. Considerable differences are found between the two methods. When the ratio between the drain spacing and the depth of the aquifer is decreased, the difference between the model results and the results obtained from the theory is increased.
