The Pumping Test consists of pumping water from a well during a certain period of time and recording the evolution of the water level drop as a function of time.
To determine the pumped flow, devices that facilitate readings should be used. Examples of devices that we can use in this test are containers with measured volume or spillways, or even calibrated orifice.
The pumping test is fundamental for the correct dimensioning of the pumping equipment to be installed in the well.
The absent of this test can lead to underutilization of the well, or the other way around, which is even worse. Exploitation more water than the aquifer could withstand, which will eventually deplete the water in the well.
All procedures applied during the pumping test are based on NBR 12.244.
