DNR Program Updates
Marty Nessman
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE

Grouting and Placement
Jim Hutmacher, CWD PI 
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE
This session will cover all types of grouting, sealing, and decommissioning wells using all products used currently in the water well industry.
Seen and Unseen Flow in Wells
Dave Hart, PhD
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE
Even in wells that aren’t being pumped or flowing artesian, water can be moving between aquifers.  This can create problems, especially if water is flowing from an aquifer with poor quality water into an aquifer with high quality water.  In this presentation, we’ll look at some examples of flow, how it’s measured, why it happens.
Groundwater Industry Update – A Look at the Rules and Regulations Affecting YOUR Industry 
Jeff Beiriger, Government Relations Advisor, Wisconsin Water Well Association 
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE
The groundwater industry is a highly-regulated industry.  And why wouldn’t it be, given its importance.  Simply stated, public health and safety is a priority for every citizen.  This session will look at all of the various regulations and talk about what’s new and how those changes affect your business and your customers.
Drill Bits and Pump Pieces
Dick Milaeger
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE
The Drill Bits portion of the presentation will discuss present and past challenges in the drilling business, successes, and failures, drilling obstructions. The Pump Pieces portion of the presentation will cover issues and failures of pumping equipment, challenges with failures, fishing and production.

Sandstone Aquifers: Their Evolving Hydrogeology and Role in Regional Hydrology
Eric Hiatt, PhD
1 = PI; 1 = WD; 1 = HE
Wisconsin’s sandstone aquifers have highly variable hydrologic properties.  These sandstones provide opportunities to demonstrate fundamental processes that sand, and sandstones undergo in the evolution of aquifer properties.  This course is designed for professionals who are not geologists or experts in sedimentary rocks, and it will highlight the factors that control the distribution and aquifer properties of sandstones.
POWTS & Wells 201 – The Impact of Septic System Density
