The storage capacity of the wetlands is comprised of groundwater flux measurements of both in and out of the wetland estimated by computer system Groundwater modeling Software. The inflow average for February was using the float method was 7.08*10-3 m3/s. The surface water levels have fluctuated over time of months. The average outflows were 0.026 m3/s in November, 0.039 m3/s in January, and in February 0.034m3/s. Reference evapotranspiration (ETo) was calculated using the Penman-Monteith equation. These values were correlated to surface water fluctuation. In the fall ETo values were approximately 1.4 mm/day and in the winter they were 1.1 mm/day. The actual surface water fluctuation was 4.5 mm/day in the fall and 1 mm/day in the winter.
