    aquifer boundaries; aquifer tests; aquifers; confined aquifers; control wells; groundwater; hydraulic properties; image wells; observation wells; storage coefficient; transmissivity;

    Rationale

    This practice is in its 6th year and overdue for reapproval or revision. This standard was previously balloted on D189.21 (19-01) and received a negative regarding it being a test method that was considered persuasive Review of the ASTM Style manual found that this standard Test Method should instead be a Practice as the standard does not generate data, but instead takes data from another method and applies mathematical manipulations. Caveats were updated and other wording to conform to D18 policies
