NGWA Webinar Explores Well Industry Advances

The National Ground Water Association is offering a Webinar series beginning Oct. 7 on “Advances in the Water Well Industry over the Past 20 Years.”

In the first of three independent but related modules, participants will better understand subsurface exploration techniques and borehole geophysics and their application.

The second and third modules will take place on Oct. 28 and Nov. 18, respectively.

The third edition of Groundwater & Wells (Sterrett 2007) captures many of the changes in the water well industry, including the improvement and use of computers, microprocessors, and digital equipment to enhance understanding of the subsurface; and the broader exchange of information between disciplines that enhance the design and installation of a well such as a greater emphasis on understanding the microbiology of the subsurface and the well environment.

This Webinar series spotlights some of the key changes incorporated in the latest edition of Groundwater & Wells. Those who will benefit from the Webinar series include business owners, contractors, scientists, engineers, and suppliers involved in the groundwater industry.

Robert J. Sterrett, Ph.D., HCItasca Denver Inc., and Thomas Hanna, RPG, Johnson Screens, will conduct the Webinar.
