The Fundamentals of Groundwater Hydrology and Contamination

Overview

This four day course will provide participants with a basic knowledge of groundwater flow in the subsurface, as well as familiarity with the concepts of water quality and groundwater contamination.

The course is intended to raise awareness about groundwater importance, uses and benefits, and to explore abstraction methods and potential impacts of pumping in surface water.

Participants will learn about groundwater occurrence and importance, principal uses and users, use of groundwater in the oil and gas industry, aquifer types, groundwater flow dynamics from recharge to discharge, quantifying groundwater flow and estimating groundwater reserves, determining aquifer parameters, water well design and construction principles, basics of well hydraulics, scope and uses of groundwater models for practical purposes, natural groundwater quality and principles of contaminant transport and common remediation techniques.

Course Objectives and Benefits

From hands-on experience you will learn:

  • The importance of groundwater in the water cycle and across the globe
  • An understanding of groundwater concepts and definitions of terms such as aquifer, aquitard, and aquifer parameters
  • An introduction to water well design and the main design elements (casing, screen, pumps, etc.)
  • The potential impacts of groundwater pumping
  • An overview of groundwater’s natural quality and drinking water standards
  • An introduction to sources of groundwater contamination and common remediation techniques
  • The basic concepts for aquifer testing to determine aquifer parameters, optimal flows rates and head losses
  • A high-level introduction to groundwater modeling including the main uses for these models

You will also receive:

  • Hands-on software exercises to help retain content
  • A DVD of exercise files to complete the exercises at home or in the office
  • A complete set of course notes
  • Trial versions of the software used in the course

Course Topics

  • The water cycle and importance of groundwater around the globe
  • Water occurrence in the subsurface and water movement
  • Definition of terms and principles of groundwater flow in the subsurface
  • Water well design concepts and capture zone concepts
  • Quantifying groundwater flows
  • Groundwater behavior near shore environments
  • Groundwater quality and contamination sources
  • Groundwater monitoring network objectives
