Borehole Design, Construction and Operation 2018
Correct design and long term maintenance of boreholes is critical to ensuring sustainable water supplies from groundwater. This course provides a detailed understanding of the principles and practice of borehole design and maintenance, including site selection, design, drilling, geophysical investigation, test pumping, and long-term maintenance. The focus is on water supply boreholes, although many of the techniques apply equally to other types of boreholes used for investigation, monitoring or water quality sampling. The course is taught by experienced academics and practitioners from leading drilling and geophysical logging companies and includes a combination of classroom work, computer practicals, and a field visit to the University’s own borehole experimental facilities at Cockle Park in Northumberland. The course is suitable for people from any environmental or engineering background who wish to understand how to manage boreholes for accessing groundwater systems.
