USGS Hydrologist conducts Instantaneous Change in GW Well

Detailed Description

Here you see a Hydrologist, David C Smith, from the Central Midwest Water Science Center conducting an Instantaneous Change in Head (Slug) Test for a USGS Climate Response Network (CRN) well in Missouri. CRN wells are used by the USGS to monitor the effects of drought or other changes to groundwater. These tests ensure that the wells are properly connected to the aquifer and that changes in the water level reflect overall changes in the aquifer. The CRN wells in Missouri are part of the extensive Missouri Department of Natural Resources groundwater monitoring network which is operated in cooperation with USGS Central Midwest Water Science Center in Missouri.
