For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com ENV 400 Week 1 Individual Assignment Managing Watersheds Complete the following questions after watching the video “New Monitoring Wells along the San Joaquin River.� Respond with 115- to 175-word answers to each question, 700 to 1050 words total. Cite your references at the end of this worksheet. Why is it important to track groundwater conditions along the San Joaquin River as additional water is released? How are groundwater conditions monitored near the river? Consider the components of watershed management. How does the release of water from dams affect watershed management?

What is the role of precipitation in the water cycle? How does precipitation affect groundwater conditions? How do dams affect the water cycle? How do precipitation and land use activities affect groundwater conditions in general? Specifically, how might precipitation and land use activities affect the wells near the San Joaquin River?


How would water flow in the San Joaquin River affect groundwater conditions? Consider Darcy’s law and explain what parameters or variables could change the degree to which groundwater conditions will be affected by water flow in the river. What is the effect of each of these parameters or variables on groundwater conditions? Suppose that a certain 200-foot stretch of the river has a width of 10 feet and an average water depth of 3 feet. Assuming that the groundwater aquifer is at a depth of 30 feet from the bottom of the river and the hydraulic conductivity of the media below the river bed can be estimated to be 1E-4 cm/sec, how much water is expected to infiltrate into the groundwater aquifer in 3 months? How would an increase of 1 foot in the average water depth affect the amount of river water infiltration to the groundwater?
