Abandoned Flowing Well in Armenia

Many flowing wells have been abandoned in the Ararat Valley in Armenia. Abandoned wells create environmental hazards (such as pathways for contamination from the land surface to reach the aquifer if well casing deteriorates in nonflowing wells) and continued depletion of the artesian aquifer from flowing wells. More information about this study is available in
