    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D6034 - 20

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

    Keywords

    anisotropy; aquifers; aquifer tests; control wells; groundwater; hydraulic conductivity; observation wells; storage coefficient; transmissivity; well efficiency;;

    Rationale

    It has been noted that several D18.21 Standard Test Methods do not generate data, but instead mathematically manipulate data obtained from other tests to evaluate aquifer characteristics. This standard has been revised into a practice in accordance with the ASTM Form and Style Manual (Blue Book). In addition, minor editorials corrections, caveat updates have been made.
