Title: Bedrock Wells
Description: This course will provide a straightforward, informational, building-block approach to allow students to develop a working understanding of bedrock wells. Essential information will be presented in each instructional segment, with the goal of providing a thorough, yet realistic, understanding of bedrock wells, and in particular, enhanced awareness of the important aspects of yield and economic considerations before planning and development. Instructional segments include: why a bedrock wells course anyway?; bedrock well exploration; well drilling and construction; bedrock well regulations and wellhead protection; and a bedrock well development case study.
Who Should Attend: This course is designed for water utility superintendents and managers who may be considering the development of bedrock wells for sources of supply. It will also provide additional information and insights to those currently operating bedrock wells. Consulting engineers, public health professionals and regulatory officials will also find this course of interest.
Pre-requisites: None
CEUs: 0.4
Learning Objectives/Outcomes: In this interactive workshop, participants will have an opportunity to Examine bedrock wells as a unique type of groundwater source with specific characteristics significantly different from over burden (gravel pack) wells; Establish bedrock wells as an alternative groundwater source in a time of increased need for development of groundwater sources in New England; Establish realistic expectations for bedrock well productivity; Examine the technology currently available to find and develop bedrock public water supply wells; Develop a step-wise approach to the assessment of your groundwater supply needs, drawing on the information provided in the course’s instructional units and case studies, to determine if bedrock well development is a viable source development consideration for your utility.
Learning Outcome/Assessment Method: In addition to the course’s interactive discussions and report-outs to the overall group, a multiple choice written self-assessment of learning outcomes will be administered following completion of the morning and afternoon sessions of the course. The written assessment will be comprised of straight forward multiple choice questions covering the core content of each instructional segment (presentation) and general course information for a total of ten questions. Each multiple choice question will examine your knowledge and understanding with regard to key concepts and information presented in a given segment and the overall course. There will be no trick questions. Following the completion of each assessment, a group review of the assessment will be conducted by the course facilitators and the NEWWA Education Staff proctor. Participants will “self correct” their assessments during this review and indicate their score on the top of their answer sheets. Participants must achieve a score of 7 out of 10 correct for a “passing grade”. Answer sheets will be submitted to/reviewed by NEWWA Education Staff proctor during the course sign-out process. Any participant who does not achieve the required passing score will meet with the NEWWA Education Staff proctor for an oral review/debrief following completion of the course. This will provide learners with an opportunity to re-examine assessment questions and answers, clarify information, and develop insight into their responses. It will also provide an opportunity to access additional learning support if needed.
