The well in the following 3 pictures is for an aquaculture operation (fish farm) in Ontario, Canada. The well produces more water than is require with a theoretical well yield estimated to be 10,000 L/min. That’s alot of water!

The well is an 8 inch natural pack well completed to a depth of 200 feet deep with 30 feet of well screen installed in a coarse gravel formation (20 feet of 125 slot and 10 feet of 80 slot – this is a very coarse formation!). The water flow in the pictures is 2000 L/min.

"We completed an aquifer performance test in which we pumped continuously for 24 hours at 2000 L/min while monitoring 15 wells. To monitor water levels we deployed 5 Heron dipperLog groundwater data loggers and manually dipped the rest of the wells with a Heron Dipper- T water level indicator." says Bruce from Geo Kamp Limited. In the photos you will see Bruce Hietkamp Hydrogeologist P.Geo & licenced Water Well Contractor for Geo Kamp Limited, Phil Brown (Driller – the fella drinking the water) and Roger Boadway (the gentleman with the glasses) both of Roger Boadway Enterprises Ltd. http://www.boadwaywells.com

At a small home garden we are measuring the depth to the water table in the well. It is pretty common for people to place their pumps about 1 or 2 meters in the ground to be closer to the water table. This makes it easier to pump. When we were talking with the farmer, he told us the water table could be found at 8 m. We measured it at 7.95 m. Pretty darn close!

Heron would like to thank Harris Switzman a researcher with UNU-INWEH and McMaster University for these great photos of the Heron dipper-T water level indicator hard at work in Egypt.
