A community well system is to provide 11,450 m³/d for the average day at its design life. The minimum demand at the beginning of the design life of the well field is estimated to be 3,800 m³/d. A hydraulic analysis of three wells operating at a maximum day demand of 22,900 m³/d sustained for a 10-day period will lower the piezometric surface to the bottom of the confining layer of the artesian aquifer. The distribution system has storage capacity for one day at the maximum demand.
