These are dry lake beds composed mainly of clay and located in intermountain valleys (Figure 2-33). During rainy seasons, playas may store large quantities of surface water. (4) Wetlands. Wetlands such as marshes, bogs, and swamps are indicative of very shallow groundwater. Although wetlands are not typical of arid environments, they have been observed in arid flow systems where groundwater accumulates behind flow barriers. Wetlands can also occur in low-lying areas where the discharge of regional spring water accumulates.
Subsurface recharge from adjacent basins is often difficult to assess. By knowing the elevation of groundwater in adjacent areas, the transmissivity of the aquifer, and the width of the recharge area, it is possible to estimate the amount of recharge from subsurface flow. This estimate usually is not possible in areas with limited data. It is possible to infer that such flow is occurring on the basis of differences in elevation and the location of barriers or conduits between hydrographic basins.
Any decrease in the head of fresh water by pumping or decrease in rainfall raises the saltwater level (Figure 2-40). The cone of depression (drawdown) produced in the freshwater level around a well allows a corresponding rise in the underlying salt water. Pumping a well should be restricted because salt 2-36 FM 5-484/NAVFAC P-1065/AFMAN 32-1072 water will enter the well if drawdown is maintained substantially below sea level for extended periods. The pumping rate should not exceed the rate of recharge.
