2 Figure H-2 Cross section at Heavitree Gap, from Berry (1992), after Wilson (1953) Berry (1992) divided Heavitree Gap vertically into three zones with different permeabilities). These were used in conjunction with the hydraulic gradient estimated previously to estimate instantaneous discharge through the gap. Results are shown in Figure H-1, and summarised in Table H-1. Table H-1 Outflows at Heavitree Gap Outflow Up to 1972 Since 1975 m3d ML/year m3d ML/year Maximum 679 246 253 92 Minimum 80 29 107 39 Average 297 108 213 77 Wilson (1957) measured hydraulic gradients in Heavitree Gap, but no data could be found to allow direct correlation of water levels in RN 3067 with the two monitoring bores. Wilson (1957) states that the hydraulic gradient in the gap ranged from 0.00369 to 0.0079.
