Rl~COMMENDATIONS 9.1 Test Pump Data Logging System Recolllln,,,ndations are made with regard to the following in the short t.erm. (i) The Data Logging Configuration. It is recolU.11lended that use of some of the existing equiJ;:ment be continued to enable the test pumping data acquisition system to be established. This will consist of the Mindata 3500 series logger, 20m vented transducer and Kent 'flowmeter'. Observation bore drawdown loggers (on should be monitored using Cherryville trial) and Mindata 20m vented transducers. Two observation bore loggers should be made available for this purpose. A barometric transducer need not be utilised with this system. The field software suite required includes a computer based selection of 'lookup' charts or flovl/piezometer relationships enabling conversion of piezometric readings to flow rates, the 'DATMAN and LOGIN' data processing package and groundwater analysis package for preliminary determination of paraneters. The method of processing pumped bore data,. assuming a 'scatter' of data to be similar to thOSE" obtained from testing I should be addressed. (ii) Training. Training time should be allocated for computer familiarisation and operation before the introduction to the logger application software. Instruction should then be given to the use of the data processing programme 'DATMAN and LOGIN' and eith,ar "iffiIP" or II GWAP " as the packa.ge which will form the determination in the field. groundwater analysis basis of parameter
