Daily Objectives #26 (December 5, 2005)                                        Dr. Sanders

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

Old Business

v  Remember the main problem/purpose of this study:  The clients (the Villages of Itasca and Elk Grove) want to install a well to serve a new water park.  They want to know 1) how deep the well should be, 2) at what rate they can safely pump it without causing problems in the nearby area, 3) what area they should outline for wellhead protection, and 4) anything else they need to know about installing this well.

In case you didn't get it last week, a file on a step-by-step approach to building your model appears here.

New Business

v  The paper, due on Wednesday of next week, should follow the format given at this link.  Get together with your group and decide how the project will be completed. 

v  The bulk of the class period today should be spent on working on the model.  Near the end of class (approximately 7:30 pm), each group will make a 5-minute presentation on their study.  Present your cross sections, outline your conceptual model, and give as much information as possible about how your model is being constructed (e.g., what are you using for initial heads, top elevations, bottom elevations, water levels, and so on).  If you have results or conclusions yet, present them.  Use visuals/poster pages!
