Groundwater:  This part of session will cover many of the basics of water and groundwater resources. Understanding the basics of the water cycle and groundwater are essential to the operations of a water utility. Instructors will discuss not only the water cycle, but basic water properties, the geology and aquifers of Wisconsin and their characteristics, the basics of groundwater movement, wellhead and source water protection and an overview of water conservation.

Well and Pumps: Over 90% of municipal water utilities use groundwater as their source. Having knowledge of wells and pumps is essential to the duties of a water utility operator. This portion of session I will cover the types of wells, and discussion which may be suitable for a municipal water system, well drilling methods, the components of a well, and different pumps that are commonly used in a water system and how they work.
