WATER RESOURCES - Collector Well Yields under Varying Seasonal Conditions
Bismarck, North Dakota, was installing new collector wells along the Missouri River but wanted to understand the range in yields under different seasonal conditions. In addition, once construction began, a previously unknown layer of boulders required that the design and yield estimates be revised.
Layne completed a detailed evaluation of the predicted well yields under varying seasonal conditions and considered critical well-design parameters, such as river stage and streambed resistance, that could affect the long-term performance of the collector well. We used our patented collector well three-dimensional modeling tools to predict long-term yields and seasonal variations. This collector well system produced approximately 25 million gallons per day.
