Application of a Spreadsheet Model to Groundwater Use in the Yazoo River Basin

Author(s): Johnson, D.

Both the USGS and MS-DEQ have developed intricate groundwater models for the Yazoo Basin in Mississippi. The difficulty in using these models is the amount of time that is required to run the model. A less accurate but faster Excel model was developed to simulate groundwater utilization in the Yazoo Basin. The Excel model can be used to screen many more alternatives than the MERAS model, which then can be applied to the most attractive alternatives. The Excel model was used to explore a range of possible management scenarios to extend the life of the groundwater resources in the Mississippi Delta.
