Document Type: Journal Paper


Small, screened wellpoint has been developed for use in making measurements of hydraulic conductivity of sand strata below water table; rate at which water was pumped out of wellpoint related directly to conductivity of strata being tested; description of construction and operation of field type wellpoint; graphs are provided which relate quantity of water pumped under various head differentials with corresponding hydraulic conductivity.
