Handbook of Suggested Practice for the Design and Installation of Ground Water Monitoring Wells

by NGWA staff under contract with the U.S. EPA's Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory
NGWA

This book presents practices currently used in the design and installation of monitoring wells. Emphasis is placed on the constraints dictated by hydrogeology conditions and limitations imposed by the availability of equipment to do the work that is needed. These constraints are balanced against the need to construct a well that will allow sampling, testing, and introduction of necessary tools. A matrix is provided to assist in the evaluation of drilling techniques. Procedures for equipment decontamination, well installation and completion, well development, well management, and well abandonment are discussed.

Lexicon of Groundwater and Water Well System Terms

NGWA Press

Among the definitions of a lexicon is "a special vocabulary" and this is the National Ground Water Association's version, which contains more than 2,000 industry terms.

The document was created by a task force of industry professionals and contains terms with the most relevancy to the various groundwater professions as to the use, protection, remediation, and management of groundwater. It was first published in 2011, a second version with more terms was created in 2013 and it was updated once again in 2014.

While there are regional differences in the use of some terms, the document serves as an ideal collection of the definitions that relate to groundwater and the professionals that work with it.
