This test gives the maximum water flow that can be pumped from the aquifer taking into account its respective dynamic level. Another characteristic given by this test is the determination of Drawdown Discharge Curves, which represent the dynamic level in relation to exploration flow [ 2 ].
These curves are usually expressed by a mathematical function and their results have presented low precision. Since aquifer behavior changes in relation to operation time, the Drawdown Discharge Curves can represent the aquifer dynamics only in that particular moment.
These changes occur by many factors, such as the following: i aquifer recharge capability; ii interference of neighboring wells or changes in its exploration conditions; iii modification of the static level when the pump is turned on; iv operation cycle of pump; and v rest time available to the well.
Thus, the mapping of these groundwater hydrology problems by conventional identification techniques has become very difficult when all above considerations are taken into account.

Besides the aquifer behavior, other components of the exploration system interfere on the global energetic efficiency of the system. On the other hand, the motor-pump set mounted inside the well, submersed on the water that comes from the aquifer, receives the whole electric power supplied to the system.
From an eduction piping, which also supports physically the motor pump, the water is transported to the ground surface and from there, through an adduction piping, it is transported to the reservoir, which is normally located at an upper position in relation to the well.
To transport water in this hydraulic system, it is necessary several accessories valves, pipes, curves, etc. Figure 1 shows the typical components involved with a water extraction system by means of deep wells.

The resistance to the water flow, due to the state of the pipe walls, is continuous along all the tubing, and will be taken as uniform in every place where the diameter of the pipe to be constant. This resistance makes the motor pump to supply an additional pressure or a load in order to water can reach the reservoir. Similar to the tubing, other elements of the system cause a resistance to the fluid flow, and therefore, load losses. These losses can be considered local, located, accidental or singular, due to the fact that they come from particular points or parts of the tubing.
Regarding the hydraulic circuit, it is observed that the load loss distributed and located is an important parameter, and that it varies with the type and the state of the material.
Figure 1. Components of the pumping system.
Therefore, old tubing, with aggregated incrustation along the operational time, shows a load loss different of that present in new tubing. A valve turned off twice introduces a bigger load loss than that when it is totally open. A variation on the extraction flow also creates changes on the load loss. These are some observations, among several other points, that could be done.
Another important factor concerning the global energetic efficiency of the system is the geometrical difference of level. However, this parameter does not show any variation after the total implantation of the system. Concerning this, two statements can be done: i when mathematical models were used to study the lowering of the piezometric surface, these models should frequently be evaluated in certain periods of time; ii the exploration flow of the aquifer assumes a fundamental role in the study of the hydraulic circuit and it should be carefully analyzed.Thus, the mapping of these groundwater hydrology problems by conventional identification techniques has become very difficult when all above considerations are taken into account.
In recent years their long-term sustainability is under pressure due to an increased demand from groundwater users.
A thorough treatment of contaminant transport issues with associated numerical models and case studies is available in Applied Contaminant Transport Modeling by Zheng and Bennett The neural approach used to determine the GEEI is introduced in Section 5, while the procedures for estimation of aquifer dynamic behavior using neural networks are presented in Section 6.
Nevertheless, because of its convenience mathematically, the groundwater velocity is frequently used.
Nevertheless, it is essential to check that the software does perform what the investigator requires. Initially, computational models relied on analytical methods but there is now a greater use of numerical models. This resistance makes the motor pump to supply an additional pressure or a load in order to water can reach the reservoir.
