Rotasonic testing Crawford Co OHtest drilling western Crawford Co OHNew Washington operated a marginal surface water supply for many years. “Conventional wisdom” is that ground water is unavailable in municipal capacity in the area. Ground Water Science conducted preliminary exploration and worked with the village to test out viable aquifer targets for the village to explore. We identified a sand-and-gravel buried-valley aquifer to the east of the village, however land constraints did not permit exploration of that resource. A high-capacity carbonate aquifer supply was identified some miles to the west, and this was tested, indicating well capacities > 500 gal/min could be expected. Economic constraints prevented developing that wellfield, and the village has since tied into a regional water system. While it did not work out this time, northern Crawford County or the City of Bucyrus could develop a regional ground water supply for a water-poor area ( and we know where that water is).

Tip of the Day

Protecting larger wellfields may require calculation of wellhead protection areas. Your state may have already done that for you, but it’s a good idea to have a hydrogeologist update the delineation.
