Well flow testing also known as Drawdown Testing is a means of determining the viability of water well as it interacts with the aquifer it is drawing from. The process in which a well flow test is carried out varies dependent on the purpose of the test. For residential needs, this test can be of a short duration simply to determine if the well has the capability to supply a household with sufficient water usually dictated by a municipality or governing body. For industrial users, this well flow test can be up to 72 hours of flow time and require the employ of a Hydrogeologist to analyze the data collected to determine the aquifer size and if the water supply is large enough to support the industry.
