Most clients in need of monitoring well design understand such work must be done under the direct supervision of a geologist, engineering geologist or civil engineer with current state registration. Personnel must also have experience in hydrogeologic investigations and monitoring well design and installation.
However, when it comes to the drilling and installation of these monitoring wells, other quality assurance practices need to be adhered to. Drilling and installation should be continuously observed and supervised in the field by personnel familiar with well drilling, sampling and construction techniques, such as a registered geologist or civil engineer, geologist-in-training, engineer-in-training, or geological or engineering technician under the direct supervision of a registered geologist or civil engineer with current state registration and experience. These personnel should also have experience in hydrogeologic investigations and monitoring well design and installation.
Prior to drilling and installation, Individual Department of Environmental Quality programs may require submittal of a work plan that justifies the placement of each monitoring well as well as a description of each monitoring well’s proposed location.
