Well Siting Hard Rock

Applying geoscanners for well siting hard rock

Discover the secrets of reliable water supply from hard rock formations

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

The goal is to identify a site that will yield a sustainable and sufficient water supply while considering geological, hydrogeological, and environmental factors. In these characterizing process the sTEM and tTEM geoscanners are valuable tools.

It requires a multidisciplinary approach that combines geological, hydrogeological, and geophysical expertise when well siting hard rock. 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.
