Advantages and Limitations

Well system technology is an efficient and effective means of assuring groundwater pollution control. Wells can be readily installed, or previously installed monitoring wells can sometimes be used as part of a well system. In addition, the technology provides high-design flexibility, and the construction costs can be lower than artificial barriers. However, wells require continued maintenance and monitoring after installation; therefore, operation and maintenance costs can be high. In addition, the application of this technology to fine soils is limited due to the low yield and small radius of influence in these soils.
