Groundwater Resources - Springs and Wells

Mark P. Rossow, Ph.D, PE Retired

This online engineering PDH course provides engineers with the fundamentals of planning and developing groundwater resources. Groundwater has many advantages over water from other sources and has considerable economic importance. The principal ways of using groundwater are through spring and well developments. A spring is a natural outflow of water from an underground supply to the ground surface. A well (vertical or horizontal) is a hole drilled, dug, or driven into the earth to obtain groundwater. The nature of groundwater, methods of obtaining it from springs or wells, and the development and maintenance of groundwater recovery systems are described.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
