Three residents living in a relatively flat subdivision own neighboring lots that share a common corner.

Three residents living in a relatively flat subdivision own neighboring lots that share a common corner. Each person gets their water from a well in their property that is screened throughout the length of the well through the water table; the wells are marked by the blue circles on the map below. The water table at Jerry's lot is at 38 feet below the surface. The depth to the water table in Tom's property is 40 feet and is 47 feet in Marsha's land. A chemical was spilled on the land surface where the three properties meet and it has reached the water table. Fortunately, the chemical is not too toxic to humans and the lives of the owners are not endangered even if they drank water coming from the wells. But, the chemical is deadly to a specific breed of dog, the shih tzu poodle mix, which apparently all residents are fond of. Your prominent environmental consulting company called Hydro 78705 has been hired to determinewhose pets are in harm's way from this spill. Accomplish this goal by mapping the equipotentialand flow lines. Whose pets are likely to die?
