Abstract

"The great increase in demand for mineral water the past few years has lead to the development of a new industry, the making of mineral water crystals. Wells that were abandoned as unsuitable for water supply, due to their salinity, have been cleaned or redrilled, in a frantic effort to supply the ever increasing demand of the crystal plants. The inevitable result is that their waters are being used at an alarming rate of consumption. The popular conception is that there is no end to the amount of charged waters that may be obtained, and, as a result, within some areas, rather closely spaced wells are contemplated. It was the discussion of this drilling campaign that led the writer to a study of the problem"--Introduction, page 2.
