Abstract
There has never been a more critical time to design, operate, and maintain ground water production wells in the most cost efficient manner possible. This presentation will highlight the critical components of the well construction process; material selection, formation sampling, gravel pack selection, screen slot size selection, and well development. Proper application of these design and construction techniques can maximize the well’s production potential and service life. Additional topics will include the definition of well efficiency and a discussion on the hydraulic losses that contribute to drawdown in the well. The primary goal for designing and constructing an efficient well is to minimize the hydraulic losses which will reduce the drawdown in the well, thereby resulting in lower pumping costs for the well owner.
