Groundwater Engineering for Water Supplies - Design, Construction, and Operation of Water Supply Wells

Conrad G. Leszkiewicz, PhD, PE, PG

The dominant application of groundwater engineering is the provision of water supplies for municipalities, agriculture, and industries. Groundwater is the earths most abundant available fresh water source, exceeding that in all of the fresh water surface bodies on earth. With increasing demands for water from growing world populations, agriculture, and industry, as well as growing intermittent, if not long-term, shortages of surface water due to droughts, groundwater is becoming an even more important source of fresh water for society. This 10-hour course is the third part of a three-part series that will provide the essential tools necessary for effective groundwater engineering for the development of water supplies. It will introduce the reader to the fundamentals of water well drilling, construction methods, well design and well acceptance tests, specific capacity of the well(s), well field design, natural and anthropogenic impacts to water quality, potential problems to be expected during operation, and methods for mitigation. It will also provide basic information on well protection and operation.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
