Well Drawdown and Pump Testing Calculations

As a licensed well driller in Utah, we have occasion to go to the Utah Division of Water Rights website from time to time. We recently were looking for some well logs and stumbled upon a rather incredible resource. They have a calculator on their site for “Theis Equation Calculation for Aquifer Testing and Well Drawdown”. While this calculation is a little advanced, it is the ‘gold standard’ for processing Aquifer Testing results.

Internally, we present results in a more simplified manner than that shown on the attached website but for those who want more information, having the calculation performed on a website or downloading the excel sheet is a rather convenient option.

DAK Drilling is able to perform pump testing for our clients to help them decide what their well will produce. If you need help deciphering that information, please let us know.
