Hydrogeology/Geophysical Field Site

Field site consists of two components: a well field and a geophysical test site. The well field consists of one, four-inch pumping well and six, two-inch observation wells. This site will be used to teach students how to perform aquifer tests (pumping tests), tracer tests, slug tests, step tests and to demonstrate water quality sampling protocols, among other things. These are all fundamental skills needed to conduct research in hydrogeology.
