Artesian well or an artesian spring is confinement. The layer on top of the aquifer exerts pressure to the water causing the water to rise.
4. What is water percolation or infiltration? Precipitation Soil Percolation recharge
Percolation is the ability of water to penetrate porous mediums such as soil.
5. What is infiltration rate? More Precipitation Soil More Percolation More recharge
5. What is infiltration rate? Less Precipitation Soil Less Percolation Less recharge
The amount of water that enters the soil in an hour is called the infiltration rate.
6. What are the factors that affect the infiltration rate? Type of soil Vegetation Slope of the land Amount of precipitation
7. What is ground water recharge? Groundwater includes the water in the water table and aquifer. precipitation Water percolates or soaks into the ground. Recharge happen when rainwater reaches the groundwater.
Groundwater recharge is a way to replenish groundwater supply. In nature, groundwater recharge is supplied by rain, snowmelt, rivers, lakes, and streams.
8. What is saltwater intrusion? saltwater Water from well becomes salty and unusable. Groundwater depletion
Saltwater intrusion is the movement of saline water into freshwater aquifers. This leads to contamination of drinking water sources.
9. What is Brackish water? Brackish water is water that is saltier than freshwater, but not as salty as sea water
Saltwater intrusion landslides Landslide Flashfloods, because of the type of soil that we have (red clay).
The phenomenon is most common in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Pennsylvania, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. When the ground beneath is limestone and salt beds. Groundwater flows through these rocks, it eats away the rocks, leaving behind subterranean holes and caverns. When the roof of one of these caverns collapses, a sinkhole is formed.
SINKHOLE: National Corvette Museum, the exhibits and what the Museum has to offer, from the new Library and Archives to expanded Corvette Store, 50s-themed Corvette Cafe and much more! The Museum is located at I-65 exit 28 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Just 1- hour north of Nashville. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IukDWhf7U9I

16. Which is formed when a section of impermeable rock forces groundwater to move laterally and emerge onto the surface of Earth? A. a spring B. an aquifer C. a geyser D. a well
17. How could a long-term decrease in precipitation impact an area? A. It could increase the average water level of lakes in the area. B. It could increase the amount of flooding in the area. C. It could decrease the amount of possible infiltration in the area. D. It could decrease the possible amount of damage to crops in the area.
18. Which problem would occur if the groundwater is drawn too much near the seawater shoreline? A. Drawdown will cause the well to go dry. B. Drawdown will cause salt water intrusion. C. The well will not be deep enough to get water. D. A cone of depression will form around the well.

19. What problem would occur if the groundwater is drawn too much? A.Formation of Karst topography. B. Formation of caves and sinkholes. C. Drawdown will cause salt water intrusion. D. All of the above.
