Figure 27. Examples of hydraulic head measured in an unconfined aquifer (point “A”) in which head is typically equal to the water table elevation at any location, and in a confined aquifer (point “B”). Note that the hydraulic head in “B” is above the top of the confined aquifer – indicating substantial pressure energy.
