Hello:


Can someone tell me how I can set up and locate wells in spcific locations on a MODFLOW model grid? How I can do this in WEAP?


Thanks

Dear Omar,

do I understand correctly, that you want to know which cells in the MODFLOW model are defined as having wells?
This information is written in the model's Well-File (ascii-file with the extension: *.wel). The file should look similar to this:

81 58 AUX IFACE NAME
81 0
1 27 43 -399.999999999976 0 "59"
1 29 42 -399.999999999976 0 "58"
1 39 44 -2200.00006554968 0 "57"
1 39 43 -2200.00006554968 0 "56"
...

The first three columns mark the location of the well in the grid. E.g.: the first well is at Layer 1, Row 27, Column 43

If you want to define new well locations and ascociate these with a demand site in WEAP, you need to edit your linkage shapefile. WEAP will then overwrite the MODFLOW wellfile.

Regards,
Markus
