Analytical methods of evaluating pumping-tests in water-table aquifers have historically made simplifying assumptions that resulted in imprecise values of hydraulic parameters. A new analytical method and computer program developed by Dr. Allen F. Moench was used to evaluate data from a pumping test conducted in a water-table aquifer near Piketon, Ohio, in 1963. The average anisotropy ratio was 8.1, lower than the previously calculated averages of 17 using the Neuman method and 71 using the Stallman method. The average value of specific yield was 0.3, which is higher than the previously calculated values of 0.09 using the Neuman method, 0.2 using the Stallman method.
