AquiferTest is an easy-to-use software package for analyzing, interpreting and visualizing pumping and slug test data. Designed by hydrogeologists for hydrogeologists, AquiferTest delivers all the tools needed to accurately interpret data from all types of aquifers in all types of test conditions.
New features and enhancements have been added to both simplify workflow and save time with your pumping and slug test analysis. Highlights include:
Using the Multi-Layered Aquifer solution (based on Hemker and Maas (1987)1, you can efficiently estimate hydraulic parameters for multiple aquifers and aquitards. This advanced analytical solution allows you to run parameter estimates and predict future drawdown in seconds, and offers a viable alternative to using 3D numerical models which can be time-consuming and complex to design.
Mapping improvements for you to effortlessly define the map origin (using click & drag with mouse wheel). Local backup files are now automatically created when you save your work. Also, you no longer need to have Microsoft Excel ® installed on your computer in order to import time-water level data from .XLS and .XLSX file formats.

AquiferTest 2016.1 allows you to customize your report grid layout by adjusting the font size and row height; ideal for accommodating lengthy description or analysis names.
AquiferTest 2016.1 is fully compatible with the Windows ® 10 Operating System. Microsoft, Encarta, MSN, and Windows are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.
The Dagan (1979) slug test solution is useful for determining the hydraulic conductivity in an unconfined aquifer where the wells are screened across the water table and the length of the well screen is much larger than the well radius.

The Neuman-Witherspoon pumping test solution is useful for determining hydraulic properties of leaky confined two-aquifer systems. Unlike other leaky methods, Neuman and Witherspoon accounts for drawdown in the unpumped aquifer.
Note: This analysis is only available in the Pro version.

AquiferTest 2015.1 allows you to easily calculate well efficiency from well losses analysis. The combination of the well loss and well efficiency analyses in AquiferTest allows you to determine the appropriate discharge rate for your well based on your pumping plan (short-term dewatering vs. long term water supply wells) while optimizing drawdown and minimizing energy costs.
AquiferTest’s diagnostic plots make it easy to identify model assumptions and select an analysis method for your pumping test data. AquiferTest 2015.1 introduces diagnostic plots for variable discharge rates, allowing you to easily identify the most appropriate solution for step tests.
Getting your field data into AquiferTest has never been faster. With AquiferTest 2015.1, you can simply drag-and-drop your datalogger files on the AquiferTest interface for quick and easy data importing.
The AquiferTest Method Selection Advisor is a new online tool that helps you choose the most appropriate solution method for analyzing your pumping test data. Simply answer a series of questions and the AquiferTest Method Selection Advisor will reveal the most appropriate method(s) based on your responses.
Save time and go straight to the analysis with flexible data import options. Quickly import field data from common file formats and virtually any groundwater datalogger on the market, including Diver groundwater dataloggers.
AquiferTest provides a set of powerful diagnostic plots that help you easily identify model assumptions and select the most appropriate analytical solution for your pumping test data
AquiferTest delivers an extensive set of solutions suitable for all types of aquifers and test conditions. Analyse confined, unconfined, leaky, and fractured aquifers. Account for various well conditions including wellbore storage, horizontal wells, and single-well analyses.
Gain a deeper understanding of your test data and take your reports to the next level with colourful contour maps showing drawdown data and well interference over aerial and satellite site maps.
Automatically transform raw analyses to professional-quality reports that include your company logo, name, project information, well data, analysis graphs and site maps. Reports templates can be customized exactly the way you want them, and saved as PDFs for easy sharing.
AquiferTest Pro provides pre-processing tools that ensure your water levels are corrected for baseline trends (trend effects) and barometric pressure changes.
Show type curve families on analysis graphs for enhanced visual curve matching of complex aquifer conditions arising from variable pumping rates, aquitard storage and boundary effects.
