*The calculated values of the partial penetration were obtained by applying Factor
RNLpp
(20).
Hernández-Valdés (2008) and the pumping
data are graphically shown.
This pumping test was conducted with
a flow volume of 26 lps in a 40 cm diameter
well and the drawdown was measured in
two satellites located 9.7 and 15 m from the
pumping well, respectively.
Calculation of Darcy’s Transmissivity T

The procedure described by Cooper and
Jacob (1946), cited by Todd (1959) is followed,
obtaining the slope per
D
St

cycle from the
graphic representation of
S vs.
log(

determining
