The Board of Examiners (BOE) staff have been requesting ideas and input from the water well construction and pump installation community regarding updating the current Water Well Construction Rules (2 CCR 402-2). Today we are releasing a first draft of potential changes to the Water Well Construction Rules based on your input. These are being released as a “redline” version of the current rules so you can see what has changed, as well as a “clean” document in which the changes are shown in normal text.

Slides from International Conference DEG Special Session

Title Slide - Temples, YoungTom Temples, DEG President, was one of four speakers at this special session sponsored by the DEG at the 2013 International Conference and Exhibition held in Cartagena, Colombia.

This presentation took a historical look at how the practice has evolved since its inception and will identify potential areas in Latin America and the rest of the world with the potential for shale resource plays and, therefore, the use of hydraulic fracturing technology. The sessopm outlined the new procedures used to protect workers as well as the environment.
