ITRC An Overview of Direct-push Well Technology for Long-term Groundwater Monitoring
Hosted by Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC)

Direct-push wells have been used for temporary groundwater monitoring purposes for many years but are generally prohibited for use as long-term groundwater monitoring wells. Recent research indicates that direct-push wells are as well suited for long-term environmental groundwater monitoring purposes as conventionally constructed wells. Since they can be installed for much less expense, direct-push wells are an attractive option. However, most states' regulations prohibit their use indirectly due to the requirement of a minimum annular space.

This training introduces state regulators, environmental consultants, site owners, and community stakeholders to The Use of Direct-push Well Technology for Long-term Environmental Monitoring in Groundwater Investigations (SCM-2, 2006), created by ITRC's Sampling, Characterization, and Monitoring Team to assist reviewers in assessing the adequacy of direct-push well projects. This course gives the participant a background in the principles of direct-push wells and presents the state of the art regarding recent research.
