Groundwater Activity Worksheet Reflection Questions- Article 1 Using the simulation, describe what happens to groundwater when pumping is lower or equal to the rate of infiltration. The groundwater slowly decreases when pumping is lower or equal to the rate of infiltration. Meaning that whenever the pump station is lower or equal to the rate of infiltration, there is a decrease in the amount of groundwater. Using the simulation, describe what happens to the stream and water table as the number of pumps running is increased. The stream and water table decrease as the number of pumps running is increased. This occurs when the pump station is increased and the rate of infiltration is less, causing the water table to drop enough that some of the shallower wells become completely dry. How can water needs be met if the rate of infiltration is lower than the rate of pumping? Water needs can be met if the rate of infiltration is lower than the rate of pumping by digging deeper wells to access the water table, but this might cause the table to lower even further underground.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
