sampling wells in Queensland

Lately your correspondent has been reflecting: have we made any real progress in biofouling control in wells? I don't mean the science or technology, where there is undoubtedly real, revolutionary progress.

We're talking about the point of application, at the town wellfield. I think there is not enough progress, and not because we have not been making the effort to put the advances in front of the end-user audiences.

  • We write: Standard Methods, independent texts, chapters in association texts, articles ...
  • We talk:¬† Conferences, seminars, short courses ...
  • We're here on the web and in social media ...

It is time the managers -- that is, those with the power of the purse, pay attention. A lot of the front-line managers and operators get it. It is time to fully embrace better methods and shed the overpromoted and underperforming.

Read the commentary and let us know what you think.
