Add Water by Location

To add a Water Surface using the Add Water by Location option:

  1. Select Groundwater > Add Water by Location add water by location icon
  2. In the Add Water Surface by Location dialog, click the Add add button button to add a new Water Surface, or choose an existing Water Surface from the list at the left of the dialog to edit its properties.
  3. Choose the Water Type: Water Table or Piezometric Surface.
  4. Only ONE Water Table can be defined for a model. There is no limit on the number of Piezometric surfaces.

  5. Enter the X, Y, and Elevation (Z) coordinates of the Water Surface.
  6. Select the desired Surface Reconstruction parameters used to generate the surface.
  7. Select the Extrapolate checkbox if you want to extend the generated surface to the limits of your model in the X and Y direction. This will ensure that the Water Surface affects all the required Materials without explicitly defining location points at the edges of your model in the XY plane.
