Flow of Groundwater Through Model

Flow of Groundwater Through Model

Several minutes after blue dye was introduced at the bottom of wells 1, 2, and 3, the plume has traveled the shortest distance in the unconfined aquifer. The dye indicates that the water in the fractured bedrock layer has traveled the fastest and has already been drawn up into artesian well number 9 and flowed into the river. Note that the model represents in minutes what may take many years in the ground.
