Abstract

The purpose of this study is to evaluate current and future water use and groundwater availability for the Osceola County Rural Water District (OCRWD) near May City, Iowa under moderate to severe drought conditions. To help predict future availability, a calibrated groundwater flow model was constructed. The model was also used to evaluate various strategies to enhance and increase both aquifer storage and induced river recharge.
