Document Type: Journal Paper


Formula for channel seepage to artesian aquifer and for resulting piezo-metric surface is presented; based on function accounting for excess irrigation and leaching water and on conventional well potential theory, method for designing intercepting drainage wells for such aquifer underlying irrigated lands is described.
