Adding multiple wells#

This notebook shows how a WellModel can be used to fit multiple wells with one response function. The influence of the individual wells is scaled by the distance to the observation point.

Load and set data#

Set the coordinates of the extraction wells and calculate the distances to the observation well.

# Specify coordinates observations
xo = 85850
yo = 383362

# Specify coordinates extractions
relevant_extractions = {
    "Extraction_2": (83588, 383664),
    "Extraction_3": (88439, 382339),

# calculate distances
distances = []
for extr, xy in relevant_extractions.items():
    xw = xy[0]
    yw = xy[1]
    distances.append(np.sqrt((xo - xw) ** 2 + (yo - yw) ** 2))

df = pd.DataFrame(
    columns=["Distance to observation well"],
Distance to observation well
Extraction_2 2282.070989
Extraction_3 2783.783397

Read the stresses from their csv files

# read oseries
oseries = pd.read_csv(
    "data_notebook_10/Observation_well.csv", index_col=0, parse_dates=[0]
).squeeze() =" ", "_")
# read stresses
stresses = {}
for fname in os.listdir("data_notebook_10"):
    series = pd.read_csv(
        os.path.join("data_notebook_10", fname), index_col=0, parse_dates=[0]
    stresses[fname.strip(".csv").replace(" ", "_")] = series

Then plot the observations, together with the diferent stresses.

# plot timeseries
f1, axarr = plt.subplots(len(stresses.keys()) + 1, sharex=True, figsize=(10, 8))
oseries.plot(ax=axarr[0], color="k")

for i, name in enumerate(stresses.keys(), start=1):

Create a model with a separate StressModel for each extraction#

First we create a model with a separate StressModel for each groundwater extraction. First we create a model with the heads timeseries and add recharge as a stress.

# create model
ml = ps.Model(oseries)

Get the precipitation and evaporation timeseries and round the index to remove the hours from the timestamps.

prec = stresses["Precipitation"]
prec.index = prec.index.round("D") = "prec"
evap = stresses["Evaporation"]
evap.index = evap.index.round("D") = "evap"

Create a recharge stressmodel and add to the model.

rm = ps.RechargeModel(prec, evap, ps.Exponential(), "Recharge")

Modify the extraction timeseries.

extraction_ts = {}

for name in relevant_extractions.keys():
    # get extraction timeseries
    s = stresses[name]

    # convert index to end-of-month timeseries
    s.index = s.index.to_period("M").to_timestamp("M")

    # resample to daily values
    new_index = pd.date_range(s.index[0], s.index[-1], freq="D")
    s_daily = ps.ts.timestep_weighted_resample(s, new_index, fast=True).dropna()
    name = name.replace(" ", "_") = name

    # append to stresses list
    extraction_ts[name] = s_daily

Add each of the extractions as a separate StressModel.

for name, stress in extraction_ts.items():
    sm = ps.StressModel(stress, ps.Hantush(), name, up=False, settings="well")

Solve the model.

We can calculate the gain of each extraction (quantified as the effect on the groundwater level of a continuous extraction of ~1 Mm\(^3\)/yr).

for name in relevant_extractions.keys():
    sm = ml.stressmodels[name]
    p = ml.get_parameters(name)
    gain = sm.rfunc.gain(p) * 1e6 / 365.25
    print(f"{name}: gain = {gain:.3f} m / Mm^3/year")[name, "gain StressModel"] = gain
Extraction_2: gain = -0.299 m / Mm^3/year
Extraction_3: gain = -0.119 m / Mm^3/year

Create a model with a WellModel#

We can reduce the number of parameters in the model by including the three extractions in a WellModel. This WellModel takes into account the distances from the three extractions to the observation well, and assumes constant geohydrological properties. All of the extractions now share the same response function, scaled by the distance between the extraction well and the observation well.

First we create a new model and add recharge.

ml_wm = ps.Model(oseries, + "_wm")
rm = ps.RechargeModel(prec, evap, ps.Gamma(), "Recharge")

We have all the information we need to create a WellModel:

  • timeseries for each of the extractions, these are passed as a list of stresses

  • distances from each extraction to the observation point, note that the order of these distances must correspond to the order of the stresses.

Note: the WellModel only works with a special version of the Hantush response function called HantushWellModel. This is because the response function must support scaling by a distance \(r\). The HantushWellModel response function has been modified to support this. The Hantush response normally takes three parameters: the gain \(A\), \(a\) and \(b\). This special version accepts 4 parameters: it interprets that fourth parameter as the distance \(r\), and uses it to scale the parameters accordingly.

Create the WellModel and add to the model.

w = ps.WellModel(list(extraction_ts.values()), "WellModel", distances)

Solve the model.

As we can see, the fit with the measurements (EVP) is similar to the result with the previous model, with each well included separately.

Get parameters for each well (including the distance) and calculate the gain. The WellModel reorders the stresses from closest to the observation well, to furthest from the observation well. We have take this into account during the post-processing.

The gain of extraction 3 is lower than the gain of extraction 2. This will always be the case in a WellModel when the distance from the observation well to extraction 3 is larger than the distance to extraction 2.
