[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The computer program WTAQ calculates hydraulic-head drawdowns in a
confined or water-table aquifer that result from pumping at a well
of finite or infinitesimal diameter. The program is based on
analytical models of axial-symmetric groundwater flow in a homogeneous
and anisotropic aquifer developed by Moench (1997) and Mathias and
Butler (2006). The program allows for ... View entire text
