Document Type: Journal Paper


Flow formulas are found for well draining water-table aquifer that overlies semipervious layer; leaky water-table aquifer is replenished by vertical percolation due to excess irrigation or leaching or both; function depending on 2 parameters is tabulated in order to simplify calculations leading to determination of appropriate well discharge and spacing; expression for time required to lower water table.
