An aquifer test is a precisely controlled field experiment employed to estimate the hydraulic properties of an aquifer. There are different types of aquifer tests. Aquifer tests are conducted for a variety of reasons. They are mostly considered to clarify the unknown of the testing aquifer and to determine the hydraulic properties of the aquifer, to help assess potential groundwater boundary conditions, and to determine the long-term sustainable yield of the aquifer in the vicinity of the well.

The selection of the aquifer test method is purpose-driven and is also dependant on the hydrogeology of the proposed test site. In many field sites, the client aims to extract an optimum rate of groundwater for a specific period. To do so, AGT is able to assist the client to design and conduct appropriate aquifer tests targetting their purpose.

Conducting aquifer tests is a precise task. The test should be planned and arranged with details and the plan needs to be conducted based on the timeline. If not done properly, the test may not be acceptable or interpretable, e.g. in case of missing some critical data during the test operations. Groundwater samples will be collected and the chemistry will be evaluated to ensure that groundwater parameters are satisfactory for any specific application of groundwater.
