Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the basics of design for groundwater abstraction in relation to water as a strategic raw material. Students must learn to characterise individual types of abstraction systems, to classify abstraction boreholes and to manage the design of individual parts of abstraction boreholes. On the basis of theoretical study and analysis of input data – sorting of information according to importance – then to propose optimal methods of drilling of hydrogeological boreholes, technical facilities for their implementation and suitable pumping equipment.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Projecting in groundwater tapping – basic data for projecting – physical and chemical water properties with respect to well design. Principal equipment types for water intake (water tapping) – horizontal, vertical and combined tapping equipment, classification of the wells for groundwater tapping – design of particular parts of wells.
