Assume that a gaining stream exists in physical connection with groundwater in an unconfined aquifer. Assume that several contour lines of equal head cross the stream and intercept it. True or False: Since the stream is gaining, the contour lines of equal head will increase in value as the stream is approached at right angles from a distance .
