Well development is not a secondary issue; it is a key element that sets the stage for the well , defining whether it will be a problem child or an asset. Christopher S. Johnson, PG, CHg, and Michael J. Schnieders, PG, PH-GW, in "Well Development Is Efficiency Development", page 23 Each employee needs to know everything possible about the business. After all, they have more invested in the success of the company than anyone else. They have invested their lives. Ron Slee, in "Leading People, Not Managing People", page 44 April PUNCH LIST The May issue of Water Well Journal focuses on irrigation and groundwater and will feature the second article in a series on aquifers of the United States. This article will focus on the Ogallala Aquifer. Most jobs we get to drill horizontal wells, we have tried to drill vertically and found no water. It is more of a "last resort" approach. Gary Soden, CWD, in "Angled Wells", page 29 Currently, the Floridan Aquifer System supports nearly 10 million people as their primary source of water and water is used for public, domestic, and industrial water supply, with almost 50% of its water being used for irrigation. Mike Price, in "Aquifers in the United States", page 17 About a quarter of all U.S. rainfall becomes groundwater. Groundwater provides much of the flow of many streams; many lakes and streams are windows to the water table. U.S. Geological Survey, in Sustainability of Ground-Water Resources The most common cause of fatalities of cranes or other high-reaching equipment is contact with overhead power lines, as electrocutions account for 32% of crane-related fatalities. Jerome E. Spear, CSP, CIH, in "Safety Around Power Lines", page 33 waterwelljournal.com 64 April 2016 WWJ
