This year marks the 5th anniversary of this event and the need to focus on fundamentals of sustainable extraction. Sustainable extraction, by utilising good design, means minimising energy use and maximising longevity. This also means ensuring there is enough water to pump, this is deduced from test pumping and data collection, and making sure this is not impacting on others. Specialist presenters from various backgrounds will be sharing their knowledge and experience regarding these topics and how they are working towards providing practical solutions to ensure sustainable extraction.
Some of the subjects being discussed are:-
- Borehole design - Getting it right
- Test pumping - Why and how
- Water level monitoring - Method in the madness
- Water flow metering - What are the options?
