draining water to the ground using canals

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I would like to check the effectiveness of using canals to draining water into the ground with the gravity (opposite of drain) without using injection well. How do I model this in GMS modflow?

Please let me know your suggestions.

Thank you,

I have used stream flow routing package SFR2 in GMS to model canals. If stages in the canal are above the groundwater elevations they lose water, if canal stages are below the groundwater table, they gain water. Can work quite well, adjusting stream bed conductance to control gain/loss rates.
