SAMPLE WELL DESIGN
B-1. THE SITUATION. The Government has purchased approximately 100 acres for use as a
site for a light manufacturing plant in the midwest. The site is generally situated between two
small towns on the western bank at a large river. Existing roads from the boundaries of the
north and west sides, a railroad is on the east and undeveloped land on the south. A creek
crosses from west to east along the northern portion and a large flat area exists for the facility.
The site is generally overgrown with hardwoods and pines. The northern portion, at the base
of the slope, is relatively flat and was once farmland. The small commercial area on the east
and both towns are served by wells located in the plains between the river and the hilly area.
A search of records, review of aerial photos and discussions with local residents indicates that
no dumps or other potential sources of pollution exist in the watershed. A plan of the site is
shown on figure B-1.
