A semi-analytical ground-water flow simulation program used for delineating capture zones in a wellhead protection areaCThe program consists of four computational modules (RESSQC, MWCAP, GPTRAC, MONTEC). WHPA is applicable to homogeneous aquifers exhibiting two-dimensional, steady ground-water flow in an areal plane and appropriate for evaluating multiple aquifer types (i.e., confined, leaky-confined, and unconfined). The model is capable of simulating barrier or stream boundary conditions that exist over the entire depth of the aquifer. WHPA can account for multiple pumping and injection wells and can quantitatively assesses the effects of uncertain input parameters on a delineated capture zone(s). Also, the program can be used as a postprocessor for two-dimensional numerical models of ground-water flow.
