    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes the field procedure for selecting well locations, controlling discharge or injection rates, and measuring water levels used to analyze the hydraulic properties of an aquifer or aquifers and adjacent confining beds.

    1.2 This test method is used in conjunction with an analytical procedure such as Test Methods D 4105 or D 4106 to determine aquifer properties.

    1.3 The appropriate field and analytical procedures are selected as described in Guide D 4043.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
