Abstract:
Simulative ground-water flow models were developed for Vekol Valley and the Waterman Wash and Bosque areas for use in evaluating alternatives for developing a ground-water supply for the Ak-Chin Indian Community. Annual recharge to the first two areas is negligible compared to the quantity of water in storage and that proposed to be pumped. The models are based on a three-dimensional, block-centered. finite-difference scheme. The Vekol Valley model was calibrated for steady-state conditions and the Waterman area model for steady-state and transient conditions. An uncalibrated storage-depletion model was developed for the Bosque area. Sensitivity of calibrated heads to changes in transmissivity was also investigated. Simulated water levels for transient conditions in the Waterman Wash area average within 8 feet of measured values for 15 years of analysis and within 15 feet for 24 years. Water-level declines simulated by the Waterman Wash area model average within 17 feet of those measured during 1951-75.
