mountain states groundwater laughlin nevada


Mount Sopris will be attending the annual Mountain States Groundwater Expo on February 9th and 10th, 2017.  The Expo will again be held at the Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada. Hosted by the Ground Water and Water Well Associations of Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, this show will host a number of exhibitors and groundwater related seminars.

Please stop by our Booth 19 to speak with Lia Martinez, from Mount Sopris Instruments, about well logging for quality well completion.  She will focus on how well logs can be quickly collected and used in the field to make decisions about what depths  to set the screen or casing, the volume of grout needed and which zones are most likely to act as barriers to contaminants from the surface. Using well logs can lead to quality well completion and higher producing wells.
