Aquifer Storage Recovery Wellhead and Core Handling Procedures

Joffre Castro and Brenda L. Hockensmith


The intention of this document is to outline and establish procedures involved in the drilling and coring operations at the Aquifer Storage Recovery Testing Site at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Owing to special project requirements, some strata will be sampled by using a transparent inner sleeve or plastic inner barrel. These samples will be called undisturbed cores to differentiate them from conventional cores collected without a liner. Handling procedures vary, depending on the core type.

This open-file report is available for review in the SCDNR's Columbia office.
