Slug tests and pumping tests are performed on wells at the Geology Museum Well Field to get the basics.  Tests are later performed at the Simpson Agricultural Station, the GE Plant in Greenville, and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville well field.  Vadose zone air pumping tests are also performed at student research sites at the Simpson Agricultural Station.
