Earth Tech developed a new and innovative wellfield facility for the Town of Bethlehem, NY. The aquifer is shallow and wide, and the wellfield includes angled wells under the Hudson River. Water quality is highly prone to clogging. A detailed O&M plan was developed to aid in extending well life. Ground Water Science evaluated water quality and developed the well maintenance aspects of the plan.
Globally, one in six people have no ready access to sanitary water. In such scenarios, women do most of the water carrying, consuming up to one-third of their caloric intake and up to 60% of their day.
