Estimates can be made of the distances to hydrologic boundaries by using water-level measurements from pumping wells and by assuming in each case the possible range of the coefficient in storage. Interpretation of pumping test data from Well 6 (J-13) at the Nevada Test Site implies that a fault 1200 ft from the well acts as the closest of the impermeable boundaries. In a case where no boundary has been felt the areal extent or volume of rocks affecting the drawdown pattern of a well can be estimated by assuming that a hypothetical boundary is just about to be felt at the time pumping stopped.
