Mount Sopris Instruments will be exhibiting and presenting in the Colorado Water Well Contractors Association (CWWCA) annual conference and exhibition on January 10-12 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center
Groundwater customers in the Mountain West should consider attending, as should those who need a good reason to ski one of Colorado’s world class resorts!
With almost 50 exhibitors, the CWWCA event is one of the largest of its kind, and will offer many opportunities for continuing education focused on improving the methods of water well construction and development.
Jim LoCoco of Mount Sopris and retired Colorado Division of Water Resources Senior Hydrologist Ralf Topper, will present a lecture from 4-5 PM on January 10th entitled “Borehole Geophysical Logging for Water Resource Development.” Ralf will discuss applications of geophysical logging within the State Engineer’s framework using Colorado field examples. He will also illustrate how geophysical logs help drillers make good decisions at the well site to maximize production.
Jim will describe geophysical logging systems and instrumentation commonly used in Colorado water wells, along with emerging techniques that include Borehole Magnetic Resonance (BMR), Spectral Induced Polarization (SIP), and a new non-radioactive source borehole Neutron Generator (nGen) for in situ porosity estimates. Jim will also show a few slides of typical geophysical log response from Denver Basin aquifers, as well as log analysis techniques.
Attendees will also be able to visit Mount Sopris’ booth during the exhibition times to get more in depth information about both the classic and new downhole tools for the groundwater industry. To learn more and register, go to the Colorado Water Well Contractors Association website.
Hope to see you there!
