Topic: Maintaining Public Community Groundwater Supplies
Operating and maintaining a public community groundwater supply system involves continual monitoring, compliance, permitting and maintenance. Monitoring of pumping and non-pumping water levels and discharge rates provides minimum data necessary for evaluation of system operation. Long-term and short term data trend analyses are tools utilized to determine well and pump operational capacity and efficiency, the need for testing, potential for well rehabilitation and aquifer characteristics. Periodic well rehabilitation through a variety of techniques is necessary on some wells to maintain capacity.
Bill Prehoda is currently a hydrogeologist with SUEZ Water New York and has 30 years of experience in groundwater supply. Bill has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in geology and is a licensed professional geologist in the states of New York, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire and a CPG with AIPG. His experience includes development of new ground-water supplies in bedrock and unconsolidated aquifers, water allocation permitting, analysis of aquifer resources, well field management, groundwater contamination and well performance issues including well rehabilitation design and oversight.
