RI43 Estimate of Direct Discharge of Fresh Ground Water to Rehoboth and Indian River Bays
Publication Type:
Report of Investigation

Andres, A.S.
Abstract:

The results of water-budget and flow-net model calculations indicate that the rate of fresh ground-water discharge into Rehoboth and Indian River bays is in the range of 21 to 43 million gallons per day. The estimates should be used only as gross indicators of actual conditions because of data gaps and the simplifying assumptions used in the models. However, the estimated discharge rates are significant and useful studies of the water budget of the Bays.
