The video, which is nearly 11 minutes, goes over the critical topic by discussing three primary properties— viscosity, weight, and filtrate; chemistry such as pH, hardness, and the calcium of makeup water; and other important properties such as plastic viscosity and yield point. During the discussion, Glotfelty shares a diagram from his book, The Art of Water Wells, to help illustrate his points and provide detail. www.WaterWellJournal.com Join NGWA Log in The Groundwater NGWA Association ® FROM FACEBOOK Understand how to decommission a well in new video on WWJ 's website The Art of Water Wells columnist Marvin F. Glot- felty, RG, discusses decom- missioning a well in a new video that has recently been uploaded to Water Well Journal's website. In the nearly 10-minute video, Glotfelty points out that while you must decommis- sion a well to meet your state's requirement, it's also critical you do so to industry standards and use com- mon sense so there are not any detrimental impacts to the aquifer in the future. Among his tips are beginning with a pre-abandonment video so you can ensure what is down the well and exactly what type of work needs to be done.
