Research for the text, Water Well Technology, was funded by the U.S. Office of Water Resources Research and was first published in 1973 by McGraw-Hill. The book underwent 12 printings over 14 years with a distribution of more than 40,000 copies worldwide. It was the first ever systematic, research-oriented study of water well technology in light of the growing environmental concerns of the day. The authors received the prestigious Ohioana Book Award in 1975.

A copy of the text’s original dust cover and fly cover containing a description of the text and a few of the early reviews have been included below for the reader’s inspection. Additional information can be reviewed concerning the senior author (via I2M Associates, LLC). I2M Associates serves the ground-water supply field (1), the environmental field (2), the mining field (3), and the legal community; see a review of selected, recent cases (4).

The text’s cover, flap containing early reviews, table of contents, the first two chapters and other selected pages have been included in a PDF file (click here). Although now dated, the text provided the research needs for the time; many of the recommendations have long since been addressed, but others have not and await attention.
