Abstract:
A two-dimensional, finite difference model was used to simulate the lowering of the water table below a floodplain in order to affect water conservation by reducing phreatophyte transpiration. Evapotranspiration capture percentages and unit water costs associated with alternative well network designs were calculated in order to determine those factors which are most important in designing an evapotranspiration capture project.
