The design, construction and testing of a horizontal well-point as a water source in a dune sands aquifer
A horizontal wellpoint has been constructed to supply irrigation water to a golf course from a coastal dune sands aquifer. The source provides the required quantities with relatively limited drawdown compared with what would be expected from a conventional vertical wellpoint system. Pumping test data have been analysed using a curve fitting method based on parabolic isochrone curves. The resulting values for the aquifer characteristics fall within their anticipated range.
