This research was aimed at developing improved methods of evaluating the hydrologic properties of aquitards and investigating the effect of the movement of water through aquitards on regional groundwater flow patterns and water quality. Field pumping tests from an earlier investigation of a leaky aquifer system in the Oxnard area of California provided data that were analyzed. It has been found that a simple method of evaluating the hydraulic properties of the aquitard is to measure drawdown in the aquitard, s', and compare it to the drawdown, s, in the adjacent aquifer that is being pumped.
