Cold weather slug test

The undergrad hydro class learned how to slug test wells this week.  We went out to the Ambler campus where I have some wells in the Stockton formation, a nice sandstone aquifer.  Cold weather didn’t affect our test results, just needed to bundle up a bit.

The students are inserted the white slug in the well.  The measuring tape is used for a quick check on recovery of the water level, but we will analyze transducer data from the well for hydraulic conductivity measurement.
