Based on the laws of conservation of mass and momentum the basic equations of motion with unknown quantities velocity and piezometric pressure are written. These equations are supplemented with boundary and initial conditions describing the motion of compatible flows. Based on the laws of motion continuum, received conditions contact on the common border interaction of surface and groundwater flows. Variational problems formulated compatible flow. Energy norms of basic components of variational problem are analyzed. Correctness of constructing variational problem arising from construction of the energy system of equations that allow to investigate properties of the problem solution, its uniqueness, stability, dependence on initial data and more. Energy equation of motion of surface and groundwater flows are derived and investigated. It is shown that the total energy compatible flow depends on sources that are located inside the domain or on its border.
