13. Refer to Figure 4.19. The hydraulic conductivity of the aquifer is 14.5 m/day. The value of h1 is 17.6 m and the value of h2 is 15.3 m. The distance from h1 to h2 is 525 m. There is an average rate of recharge of 0.007 m/d.
(A)What is the average discharge per unit width at
x 5 0?
(B)What is the average discharge per unit width at x 5 525 m?
(C)Is there a water-table divide? If so, where is it located?
(D)What is the maximum height of the water table?
