Water Well Design and Site Selection

Gain an understanding of the causes and the approaches used to prevent or correct poor well performance.

Problems with well performance are usually preventable, often start with well construction and development, and are then exacerbated by water quality conditions, well operation and rehabilitation efforts. Discuss the key factors affecting well performance including well design, initial screen development, biological and mechanical plugging, and well rehabilitation methods. An asset management based approach is described that helps prioritize maintenance decisions and long term well field operation. Over the past several years there has been significant research done worldwide related to optimizing well performance. This research has included looking at the mechanisms involved with biological and mechanical plugging of aquifers, and the effectiveness of various rehabilitation technologies. This topic will discuss several studies in Europe that looked at the mechanisms associated with poor well performance and innovative approaches being used to prevent or correct poor well performance.
