Groundwater Seminar

CEU TYPE: Technical
MO DNR #:  14091025 

TOPIC: 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. This workshop will 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. The workshop will also 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. Outline Well Design and Construction ♦ Wells and geology ♦ Putting together good bid specifications ♦ Well screen design considerations ♦ Working with drilling contractors Well Development Options and Long Term Performance Monitoring ♦ Goal of well development ♦ Pros & cons of development options ♦ When is development complete ♦ Key well performance monitoring tools Groundwater Law and Rules in Illinois ♦ Overview of groundwater rules ♦ New laws in the pipeline Well Rehabilitation ♦ Rehabilitation options (Mechanical, Chemical, Induced Resonance) ♦ Process more important than technology ♦ Optimal rehabilitation approach ♦ Working with rehabilitation contractors ♦ Examples of real world rehabilitation projects Rehabilitation versus New Well Construction ♦ Comparison of costs ♦ Infrastructure considerations

INSTRUCTORS: Jim Bailey, Shannon & Wilson and David Cavender, Horner & Shifrin Engineers
