  • WET WELL PUMPING CHAMBER

    Our American Agent has just completed an installation at a waste water site in Michigan State.  A wet well pumping chamber, with no mixing being carried out, was experiencing a build up of rags and other solids consolidating into a floating mat. As the pumps drew from the bottom of the chamber, taking fluid away, the floating mass of solids was becoming thicker and thicker over time. ...

  • NGWA offers one-day geothermal heat pump well construction course

    Water well contractors interested in entering the geothermal heat pump well construction market can take a one-day course on June 20 in Muncie, Indiana, offered by the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).Geothermal well construction generally uses the same equipment and requires many of the same skills used by water well contractors. However, some additional training is needed as well as new ...

  • Drinking water wells vulnerable to contamination

    New USGS groundwater studies explain what, when, and how contaminants may reach public-supply wells. All wells are not equally vulnerable to contamination because of differences in three factors: the general chemistry of the aquifer, groundwater age, and direct paths within aquifer systems that allow water and contaminants to reach a well. More than 100 million people in the United States ...

  • Leaky wells, not fracking, taint water

    The drilling procedure called fracking didn't cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells. After looking at dozens of cases of suspected contamination, the scientists focused on eight hydraulically fractured wells in those states, where they ...

  • Second well on the way to cap deepwater horizon

    If you think threading a needle is difficult, imagine drilling into an 18-centimetre-wide cylinder 5500 metres below the sea floor. That is the challenge facing BP engineers as they attempt to drill two relief wells in the Gulf of Mexico in a bid to stem the flow of oil from the stricken Deepwater Horizon. A relief well aims to bisect the original well casing, enabling engineers to pump in mud ...

  • Water well maintenance important to water quality

    A poorly maintained water well system can lead to poor water quality, so household water well owners should inform themselves of good water well maintenance practices, the National Ground Water Association said today. “Neglecting a water well system’s maintenance can have a direct impact on one’s health, so it’s important to stay on top of a water well system’s ...

  • Modeling geothermal wells using SVHeat and SVFlux

    Numerical modeling of geothermal processes has received increased attention in recent years. The process of installing geothermal heating systems in residential homes and cottages is one application of numerical models. These systems typically involve drilling between one and three wells on a particular property. Heat exchangers then act as a pump and remove heat from the ground in order to heat ...

  • Well Repairs Complete, Getting Ready to Stimulate

    It’s been a busy couple of weeks here at the Newberry EGS Demonstration. In early August, a drill rig arrived on site to perform required upkeep on the injection well. This work went very well, and the rig has been released from the site. The next step in this summer’s field work is to prepare the site for stimulation activities. Over the next two weeks, we’ll be bringing our ...

  • Scientists collect water near site of blown well

    Scientists from several universities are working to learn whether a gas well that blew wild last week off the Louisiana coast is polluting the Gulf of Mexico. Joseph Montoya, a biology professor with Georgia Tech, was performing tests aboard a vessel near the site of the 2010 BP oil spill when the Hercules 265 well blew Tuesday and caught fire. All 44 people on the rig were evacuated and not ...

  • Abandoned water wells can present risks

    Household water well owners should act to address any improperly abandoned wells on their property as they can present threats to both people and animals, the National Ground Water Association said today. “Abandoned wells can be a physical danger to people and animals who may fall into them, but an even greater threat may be the pathway that an abandoned well provides for surface ...

  • Energy-efficient Centrifugal Pumps Well Poised to Survive the Market Instability, Finds Frost & Sullivan

    Like most other markets, the European centrifugal pumps market was buffeted by the global financial downturn of 2008-09 but bounced back in 2010-2011, at a cautious pace. The deferment of many projects in end-user industries such as oil and gas, building services, and chemical process as well as the austerity measures in countries like Italy, Spain, and Greecehad pegged back the market. However, ...
