By the end of today’s class, you should be able to do the following:

* Using the points we plotted on the side of the ground water model last time, find areas of faster and slower ground water flow.

* Plot water table elevation in wells on a map, contour the points,  and tell what direction water is flowing based on the mapped position of the water table.

* Use a ground water table elevation map to determine possible sources of contamination found in a lake and a municipal well.
