Feb. 23, 2011 – The National Ground Water Association will offer a webinar entitled "Well
Profiling Technologies, Uses, and Solutions" on April 20 at 1 p.m. (EST).

Well owners and operators sometimes face challenges including
decreased well yield and efficiency, short-term exceedance of water
quality standards, and the onset of chronic exceedance of water quality
standards.

Advertisment

Information derived from well profiling can be used to assess
flow and water quality conditions within a well/aquifer system and to
design cost-effective solutions to some problems. Profiling tools have
become progressively smaller, making well access easier and less costly
with little or no disruption to a well's operation.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • What information can be obtained from well profiling
  • Reasons to profile a well
  • Which well profiling tools/methods should be used
  • How to use profiling results to address well operation and maintenance issues
  • How to implement a well profiling project.


Those who will benefit from attending the webinar include public
water systems operators, water systems managers, contractors,
consultants, regulators, geologists, engineers, and academics and
students studying water supply, well construction, and hydrogeology.

Participants should have a basic knowledge of groundwater hydrology and well construction/operations.
The webinar will be presented by Robert J. Collar, PG, CHG, Golden State Water Co., and Michelle Whitman, BESST.

educational programs, visit the Events/Education menu tab on the National Ground Water Association's website, or
