Design and Build Safe, Efficient Systems for Irrigation and Water Supply
Water Wells and Pumps is a comprehensive guide to the essential theory and design of ground water structures, wells/tube wells, and pumps, with particular emphasis on problem solving and meeting the requirements of developing nations. It features thorough, up-to-date knowledge of the science and technology of water wells and pumps as well as allied appliances and applications.This authoritative desk reference outlines the construction, operation, and maintenance of water wells for irrigation and water supply. It also presents the development and testing of tube wells as well as a variety of pumps, both location-specific. Using SI units exclusively, Water Wells and Pumps features:
  • Coverage of a variety of pumps, including those using nonconventional, environmentally friendly means
  • Examinations of ground water recharge methods, well rehabilitation, and animal-powered water lifts
  • Techno-economic evaluation of projects on wells and pumps
  • References and problems at the end of each chapter for research and educational use
