Ground Water in the Pacific Rim Countries

Optimal sustained-yield pumping strategies were developed for the irrigated and industrialized eastern shore of the Great Salt Lake. The combined optimization and simulation model, in which steady-state, finite difference, quasi-three-dimensional ground water flow equations were embedded as constraints, computes the optima,! distribution for sustainable annual ground water pumping rates for alternative scenarios. 1. The model deals with management of a large, multilayer, confined/unconfined (linear/nonlinear) aquifer system. 2. The research can help manage water in the study area where· the demand for water of sufficient quality and quantity is increasing due to urbanization.
