Description

Prepared by the Task Committee on Hydraulics of Wells of the Groundwater Hydrology Technical Committee of the Groundwater Council and Watershed Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE.

Hydraulics of Wells: Design Construction Testing and Maintenance of Water Well Systems provides comprehensive treatment of the engineering issues related to the development and management of economical supplies of groundwater. Groundwater is a vital resource in nearly all parts of the world. Because groundwater is typically of high quality and dependability this vital resource is used to supply drinking water in nearly all parts of the globe. Demand for groundwater is expected to increase as population expands and technology advances. Yet groundwater is not free from costs and limitations including the construction and maintenance of wells and pumping equipment as well as storage and transmission infrastructure. Threats to well capacity and water quality rise from a variety of factors such as pollution overuse and drought.

This Manual of Practice codifies existing practices in the water well industry in order to improve the identification development and management of groundwater resources in the future. Topics include: fundamentals of hydrogeology; efficiency of water well systems; design of water wells; construction development and testing; corrosion; incrustation; wellhead protection; and maintenance. Appendixes include a detailed example of a system design for a water well and sample technical specifications for drilling constructing and testing of water wells.

MOP 127 guides engineers and designers through the process of planning designing installing maintaining and troubleshooting water-well systems. Managers administrators and water-well operators at all levels of government as well as in the private sector will find it an indispensable reference to water wells assets.
