2011 Vol. 11, No. 1 • Coordinator’s Corner • 2012 OGWA Trade Show and Conference • Enforcement of Rules Regarding Well Driller Licensing and Multi-purpose Completion Report Submittal Coordinator’s Corner Kent Wilkins, OWRB Drillers Program Coordinator Kent Wilkins, OWRB Drillers Program Coordinator www.owrb.ok.gov 2011 brought to Oklahoma one of the worst droughts of record, and many parts of the State are still enduring a severe drought. Weather patterns are extremely unpredictable; we now have to prepare for the occurrence of significant earthquakes. I recently turned 50 years old and experienced the coldest and hottest temperatures of my life, all in the same year! Most licensed drilling/pump contractor firms have reported that business this past summer was great. Reports of firms having a waiting list from six weeks to three months for drilling a well is a good sign. One firm reported drilling seven stock wells and installing seven solar pumps in seven days. Please be aware that a number of rule changes were approved during 2011. The primary rule change will hopefully streamline our enforcement capability by allowing field citations to be issued by field inspectors to unlicensed individuals. Other changes include the use of bentonite chips for a filter pack seal and the requirement for monitoring/geotechnical boring firms to file all well reports online. Feel free to give me a call for a copy of the current rules or download Chapter 35 from our website at www.owrb.ok.gov. The 10th annual Oklahoma Ground Water Association (OGWA) Drilling Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Norman on February 15-16, 2012. The Embassy Suites is a wonderful facility, plan on traveling to Norman this year for an excellent schedule of presenters, exhibits, and topics. This year the OGWA/NGWA are pleased to announce that Marvin Glotfelty, Registered Geologist from Arizona, is the McEllhiney Lecturer. Mr. Glotfelty will discuss the economics related to construction of water wells. Check out more conference and association information on the OGWA website at www.okgroundwater.org. Everyone can gain useful information to improve his or her business while obtaining required continuing education credit. As always, if I can be of any assistance, please contact me at (405) 530-8852. 2012 Oklahoma Ground Water Association (OGWA) Trade Show and Conference Please join us for the 10th annual Oklahoma Ground Water Association Drilling Conference & Exhibition to be held February 15 & 16, 2012 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Norman, Oklahoma. Don’t miss this great opportunity to obtain up to 10 hours of continuing education credit! On February 15, 2012, all attendees will have an opportunity to attend the 2012 McEllhiney Lecture: “Life-Cycle Economic Analysis of Water Wells—Considerations for Design and Construction,” presented by Marvin F. Glotfelty, RG. Mr. Glotfelty will show how seemingly more expensive initial water well costs may actually pay for themselves in the early life of the well, in addition to providing ongoing dividends in value and economics for many subsequent years.
