Slug Testing
10104021031600Slug TestingSlug testing has been used over the years to obtain a cost-effective quick estimate of the hydraulic properties of aquifers. Slug testing has gained in popularity since the 1980s since it can be used to obtain hydraulic property estimates in contaminated aquifers where treating pumped waters is not desirable. Slug-testing analysis methods were first developed during the 1950s (Hvorslev 1951; Ferris and Knowles 1954). The simple method devised by Hvorslev (1951) led to its wide use for both confined and unconfined aquifers as an estimate of the hydraulic conductivity within th…
