  • Optimizing Well Performance Through Dynamic Flow and Chemistry Profiling October 10, 2018 Optimizing Well Performance Through Dynamic Flow and Chemistry Profiling
    Stringent drinking water standards for constituents like chromium, arsenic, volatile organic compounds, and nitrates, combined with continually higher demand for groundwater resources have led to the need for more efficient and accurate well characterization. Many wells are screened across multiple aquifers to maximize groundwater production, and since these aquifers can have different water qualities, the ...
