Unformatted text preview: 2 and 4 are 90-cm long. What is the direction of water flow (vertical gradient) between piezometers 1 & 2 and 3 & 4? If a well is located triangular with respect (i.e. the well is projected out from the paper forming a triangle with the piezometers and you are to assume that the soil surface is flat, i.e., all at the same elevation) to these two batteries of piezometers and the depth to water at the well is 45 cm –approximately in what direction is the groundwater flowing (this could be done with a diagram)? Again assume this is representative of the area for the hydraulic conductivity you measured in class and calculated in problem 1. With this assumption what is the flux (q) of water flowing between piezometer 3 and 4?...
