Effective Groundwater Supply Management

Effective Groundwater Supply Management

1 hr. Online Course

Level: Advanced

Item#: RV-11325

SME: Pat Rushing

Effective Groundwater Supply Management is essential if groundwater resources are to remain viable for the foreseeable future. Groundwater Management is a rapidly evolving discipline that is incorporating ever more factors into the evaluation of principles that will ensure that no harmful effects arise from the utilization of this resource while ensuring that all potential resources that can be maintained are used to satisfy an ever-increasing demand. This interactive online course will present a history of Groundwater Management from its beginnings in the middle of the last century through the present day. Current parameters and environmental factors of concern will be outlined.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Identify the basics of groundwater management techniques
  • Describe the concept of “safe groundwater yield”
  • Compare and contrast the “safe yield concept” and the “sustainability concept”
  • Identify the environmental factors that determine groundwater withdrawal rates
  • Identify basic components of groundwater flow
  • Recognize basic groundwater flow equations
  • Identify types of aquifer material
  • Identify aquifer parameters such as porosity, yield, storage, and hydraulic conductivity
