ASTM WK72605

    Revision of D6029 - 17 Standard Test Method (Analytical Procedure) for Determining Hydraulic Properties of a Confined Aquifer and a Leaky Confining Bed with Negligible Storage by the Hantush-Jacob Method

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.21 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK72605


    Keywords

    aquifers; aquifer tests; confined aquifers; confining beds; control wells; groundwater; hydraulic properties; leakance; leaky aquifers; observation wells; storage coefficient; transmissivity;;

    Rationale

    A review of D18.21 standards found several, including this standard, that did not generate data, but instead mathematically manipulated data obtained from another test for the evaluation of an aquifer. Following the ASTM Style manual, this standard has been revised from a Test Method to a Practice in the title and throughout the text. Other minor edits were made to bring the caveats to the current D18 wording
