Drawdown patterns due to pumping from wells in long narrow (strip) aquifers are dependent mainly on the type of side boundary (recharge, impermeable). A theoretical solution is developed for an idealized confined aquifer with impermeable boundaries, and the results compare favorably with those obtained from complementary tests using a membrane analog. Solutions are also given for the simpler case of recharge boundaries. Either the mathematical or membrane solutions should be suitable for field purposes, including certain conditions of unconfined flow.
