The Water Table

The water table is dynamic. Because groundwater flows through pore space relatively slowly, the surface of the water table is not always flat. In most cases, it generally follows the topography. Mountains, rivers, and streams influence the water table and can make interpretation more difficult. This activity will show the students how we determine the shape of the water table and how the groundwater is related to the surface water in Spring Creek.
