Analyzing Recovery Tests

Did you know that AQTESOLV v4.x provides three different methods for the analysis of recovery tests?

Method 1: Combined analysis of drawdown and recovery data.
Method 2: Analysis of residual drawdown data.
Method 3: Analysis using Agarwal (1980) method.
The foregoing figures illustrate the use of the three recovery test methods in the analysis of a field example reported in the Ground Water Manual (USBR 1995). The results show that one may obtain consistent aquifer property estimates with all three techniques.

Learn more about the three methods of recovery analysis in Aquifer Testing 101 at the AQTESOLV web site.
