Project 2 – Groundwater Model Calibration Given: Planning to install a new 1500 m 3 /d well at their main facility, a small manufacturer hires you to determine whether their proposed well (see attached map) will cause any problems with an existing well and whether the new well or the existing well would likely become contaminated by a nearby TCE plume as a result of the operation of the new well. The new well will be operated continuously. Geologic data indicate a water table aquifer with bottom elevation of –50m in this area. The aquifer abruptly pinches out west of line 1-2 and south of line 2-3 so that the aquifer is constrained to the region N and E of these two lines. Ground surface elevation in the area is approximately 10m. A creek flowing through the area empties into the deep lake (water surface elevation 0.00m) in the NE corner of the map. Although there has been no study of actual recharge rates to this aquifer, long term average recharge from precipitation in this part of the state varies between
