The paper defines the average and local soil storage coefficients, for a soil with relatively shallow water table. By means of an adequate law for the suction distribution on soils level and certain parametrical models for the moisture retention curve of soil, the analytical equations for these storage coefficients were determined. Theoretical results are to be applied for a case study and on the basis of a pertinent analysis, and some recommendations were made for the practical use of formulae proposed for the storage coefficients.
