Aquifer tests are an essential part of the District’s permitting process. The Board and staff rely heavily on results of these tests to inform permit volumes and conditions.
In the spring, Electro Purification (EP) submitted a test well application to allow them to perform an aquifer test on three wells. District staff worked with EP to design and plan an aquifer test that meets District guidelines. The aquifer test will measure responses to abbreviated pumping simulations from the target pumping zone (Middle Trinity–Cow Creek Formation) in surrounding Upper, Middle, and Lower Trinity wells (generalized stratigraphic column showing aquifers and associated formations). The aquifer test is a collaborative effort between the District and EP and will take two to three months to complete… Read more from BSEACD
