California State University, Sacramento Week 9: Flow net workshop and Non steadystate flow to a well: Theis solution for a confined aquifer 
Objectives:
Upon completion of this unit students should be able to:
Read, interpret and construct a flow net
Make simple calculations using a flow net
Use non steadystate equations for flow in confined and unconfined aquifers to estimate hydraulic head at a known distance between two monitoring points.
List and discuss the assumptions that are associated with the Theis equation.
Use well function tables to interpolate using the Theis equation.
