Conn. Agencies Regs. § 25-128-45 - Length of casing, gravel wells

Current through March 4, 2022

(a) The length of the casing in a gravel well shall be such that the pumping level does not drop below the top of the screen.
(b) In conditions of aquifers alternated with silt clay and other undesirable zones, the casing shall extend at least two (2) feet into the aquifer underlying the cased zones, as shown by figure 2.
(c) In conditions of aquifer overlain by layers of clay, silt, fine sand, or any other sand that cannot be developed for ground water, the casing pipe shall extend at least five (5) feet into the aquifer. But if the aquifer thickness is less than five (5) feet, the casing shall extend into the aquifer as much as feasible to serve the general purpose of casing, as shown by Figure 3.
(d) In conditions of aquifer overlain by till, the casing pipe shall extend at least five (5) feet below the bottom of the till. But if the aquifer is less than five (5) feet thick, the casing shall extend into the aquifer as much as feasible to serve the general purpose of casing, as shown by Figure 4.
(e) In conditions of aquifer overlain by clay, the casing shall extend at least five (5) feet below the bottom of the clay. But if the aquifer is less than five (5) feet thick, the casing shall extend into the aquifer as much as feasible to serve the general purpose of casing, as shown by Figure 5.
(f) In conditions of aquifer overlain by unconsolidated material without clay beds, the length of the casing shall be such that the pumping water levels do not drop below the top of the screen.
(g) In the event the aquifer consists of very coarse gravel and no screen is used, the casing pipe shall extend into the aquifer as much as feasible to develop the required quantity of water.
