Presented on Thursday, June 12, 2014

During this half-hour brown bag webinar, designed especially to benefit those who do on-site development inspections and project management, you will learn what to look for on-site and find out how to:
  • Know if the contractor is delivering what is expected
  • Understand what your new well will deliver based upon —
    • Development
    • Test pumping
    • Well behavior during the development

Set test pumping rates — and know when the process is complete.
