Arizona Wells: Low Yielding Domestic Water WellsUhlman, Kristine; Artiola, Janick; Water Resources Research Center (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2011-01)To develop a ground water resource, it is necessary to design and construct a well capable of yielding a pumping rate compatible with the needs of the water well owner. Sufficient and sustained well yields are highly dependent on the characteristics of the aquifer, the construction of the well, and the maintenance of the well. Causes of low-yielding wells are explained and practices to restore well performance are recommended.
