Designing Production Wells to Optimize Performance and Efficiency
Kevin McGillicuddy, P.G.
Roscoe Moss Company
RSVP For This Event
There has never been a more critical time to design, operate, and maintain ground water production wells in the most cost efficient manner possible. This presentation will highlight the critical components of the well design process; material selection, formation sampling, gravel pack selection, slot size selection, and well development and how these processes can maximize the well’s production potential with minimal losses. In minimizing well losses, the well owner can operate the well with greater cost efficiency.
Kevin McGillicuddy, P.G., is the Chief Hydrogeologist for the Roscoe Moss Company and has nearly 30 years experience working as a ground water specialist. He joined the Roscoe Moss Company in 1996 and has worked as a technical liaison to municipal water agencies, groundwater consultants, and water well contractors. He has managed and participated in several educational workshops on water well design, testing and rehabilitation. Prior to joining Roscoe Moss Company, he worked as Director of Recharge Operations and as a Senior Hydrogeologist for the Orange County Water District in Fountain Valley, CA. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology from Boston College and Masters’ of Science Degree in Geology from the University of Southern California. He is a Registered Geologist in the State of California.
