Well Siting Hard Rock

Applying geoscanners for well siting hard rock

Discover the secrets of reliable water supply from hard rock formations.

Well-sitting refers to the process of selecting an appropriate location for constructing a well, borehole, or other subsurface structure intended to access groundwater. In hard rock areas, it involves selecting a suitable location for drilling a well in areas where the subsurface is primarily composed of hard rock formations.

The goal is to identify a site yielding a sustainable and sufficient water supply while considering geological, hydrogeological, and environmental factors. The sTEM and tTEM geoscanners are valuable tools in these characterizing processes.

When well-siting hard rock, a multidisciplinary approach that combines geological, hydrogeological, and geophysical expertise is required. By carefully considering these factors, well-siting efforts can result in the successful construction of water wells that provide a reliable and sustainable water supply from hard rock formations.
