    Abstract

    Most common methods used to present water-level data are graphical. These include various kinds of hydrographs, such as those showing water level versus time, draw-down versus time or distance, or the level in one well versus that in another. Contour plots in map view are essential for evaluating ground-water flow. Water levels on cross sections are useful in evaluating the relationship between stratigraphic units and water levels. Flow nets can be used in plan or cross-sectional view to estimate flow lines and possible pathways for seepage.
