11. An unconfined aquifer has a hydraulic conductivity of 8.7 x 10-2 cm/s. There are two observation wells 597 ft apart. Both penetrate the aquifer to the bottom. In one observation well the water stands 28.9 ft above the bottom, and in the other it is 26.2 ft above the bottom.
(A)What is the discharge per 100-ft-wide strip of the aquifer in cubic feet per day?
(B)What is the water-table elevation at a point midway between the two observation wells? Show all work.
