  • Section 2: Deciding Where to Drill

    Deciding Where to Drill When drilling equipment is available, it is very tempting to get right to work drilling wells However, wells should be carefully sited so that drilling only occurs where there is a high probability of successfully penetrating into water-bearing formations and the wells can be effectively used, maintained (), and protected from contamination...

  • Protected Wells

    The most costly kind of well, called a tube well, is a narrow pipe going deep into the ground with a pump at the top to draw water out A well is useful only if people can get water out of it The best well for any community depends on the depth of the groundwater and the resources available for digging, drilling, and building a well...

  • Wisconsin aquifers

    An aquifer is a geologic formation (rock, gravel, or sand) that contains useable amounts of groundwater and can contribute that water to wells, springs, lakes, or streams Groundwater is simply water in the ground, where it fills and moves through pores and cracks in the aquifer...

  • Mining Water Use

    The mining water-use category includes groundwater and surface water that is withdrawn and used for nonfuels and fuels mining Nonfuels mining includes the extraction of ores, stone, sand, and gravel Fuels mining includes the extraction of coal, petroleum, and natural gas Water is used for mineral extraction, quarrying, milling, and other....

  • Well Diameter vs Volume of Water

    Oct 01, 2002· The hydraulics of ground water flow - you know, all the calculus and differential equations - say that if two wells are of the same well efficiency (rarely is a well ) and the flow to the well is laminar, not turbid (which is usually the case), then the amount of water flowing into the well is controlled by the hydraulics of the formation ....

  • Mining and Water Quality

    Water running through mine tailings can become polluted A US Geological Survey (USGS) scientist and a volunteer sample metal-rich water from a seep draining a pile of mine tailings along Silver Creek, near Park City, Utah Seeps such as this one can come from tailings piles that are remnants of past mining activiti...
