• Description

• Permeable catchment area fed with ‘rain’ from overhead spray nozzles and/or by groundwater flow
from ends of tank
• Spray nozzles to supply half or all of catchment area
• Piezometer tappings to measure water table profile
• Can measure ‘drawdown’ due to single or two interacting wells
• Adjustable inclination of catchment area angle
• Includes flow meter to measure flow to the catchment area
• Run-off and well flows measured by calibrated rectangular weir
• Self-contained – requires only an electrical supply
