Groundwater Resource Development

Effects and Sustainability

Leonard F. Konikow and John D. Bredehoeft

Cover of the book Groundwater Resource Development

When a well is pumped, the discharge is balanced by some combination of an increase in recharge, a decrease in other groundwater discharge from the aquifer, and a reduction in groundwater storage in the aquifer system. This book explains the interrelation among these factors and how they can be estimated. The authors describe the historical magnitude of groundwater use and its relation to the depletion of groundwater in storage in aquifers, as well as conditions that allow sustainable groundwater development.
