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

In case you didn't get it last week, a file on a step-by-step

In case you didn't get it last week, click here for a checklist
of parameters you must set for your model.
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.
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!
