The Workforce Program hosts webinars on a variety of topics related to the geosciences, ranging from career development topics and economics of geoscience to topics of interest to support the success of geoscience academic departments.

A groundwater well is a lifeline for many people and communities. It will provide drinking water for decades, if it is properly maintained. Just like your teeth need to be cleaned by the dentist and the oil in your car's engine needs to be changed to maintain a long and healthy life, so does your well. We will explore what causes a well to decline in performance and why.
AGU/AGI Heads and Chairs webinar which will look at the experiences of smaller departments in their efforts to raise external funds and what actions proved most successful.
There is no magic method to clean a well. There are many techniques, some that have been used for decades, others are fairly recent. The objective of the re-development is to return the well to its condition when it was installed. We introduced the term Specific Capacity in an earlier session. We will demonstrate why measuring the Specific Capacity of your well is so important.
AGU/AGI Heads and Chairs webinar to discuss examples of implementing curriculum reform within a geoscience department.
Depending upon how you have maintained your well, the costs for re-development will vary. For example, for a well that has not been maintained, the costs and methods for re-development can be very high. For well-maintained wells, re-development costs should be less. Remember that part of the re-development is to examine the well pump and motor and column pipe. State and local regulations must be followed as part of the re-development process.
