A well is filled with a filters at a rate of 375 gpm. The clear-well measures 10' wide x 80' long x 12' deep. If it had 5' of water in it how long (in hours) would it take to fill completely?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

V=lwh

V=10ft*80ft*(12-5)ft=5600ft^3

5600ft^3*(7.48gallons/1ft^3)=41888gallons

Q=V/t

375gpm=41888gallons/t

t=111.7 minutes=1.86 hours


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
