Water Well Design and Site Selection

February 18

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

This presentation will cover the fundamentals related to siting wells, well designs, and the design aspects of constructing wells, including materials and parameters related to the casing/screen string, gravel packing, grouting, well development, and testing. The testing discussion will include the multiple functions of testing, including designing the pump installation, establishing the initial efficiency of the well, and the use of ongoing testing data to assess the operation and maintenance of wells over time. Rehabilitation methods for wells will also be discussed. This presentation is designed for anyone interested in the entire process related to well drilling, from siting the well to the design, installation, and operation of existing wells.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify rehabilitation methods for wells.
  • You will be able to discuss hydrogeologic and well concepts.
  • You will be able to recognize the multiple functions of testing.
  • You will be able to explain the entire process related to well drilling, from siting the well to design, installation, and operation of existing wells.
