NOTE Saying ‘Good Job’ Takes Only a Few Seconds

EDITOR’S

person on her way to a meeting at a hotel paused when she was about to pass a coffee shop. Incredibly, it wasn’t the smell of fresh roasted java that halted her in her tracks. She remembered someone who would be at the meeting had been doing a bang-up job of late. So this person went in the shop, purchased a cup of coffee, and gave it to the fellow attendee along with a hearty thank you when she arrived at the meeting. It was a gesture that took only a few extra minutes and a few extra bucks. But it most likely made an impact that is immeasurable—months and months of hard work from a now extra excited employee. The person who purchased the coffee is the assistant director of human resources at The Broadmoor, a five-star resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where the customer service deserves a sixth star. And it’s obvious why. Every manager at the resort could tell you dozens of personal stories similar to the coffee because recognition is part of their philosophy. “If it takes you longer than five seconds to remember the last time you told someone they’re doing a great job, it’s been too long,” the director added after recalling her story to me. Wow. How long has it been for you? I admit I can get caught up in the dayto-day processes of making sure items get checked off the to-do list and can forget those helping me. Yes, it took me longer than five seconds to remember

A

my last thank you. It won’t ever take that long again though. Saying “thanks” or “good job” is easy and so helpful. Sometimes the notice of a manager or boss is what truly keeps employees going when the task is tough or the hours are long. And sometimes recognition does more. It can be the fuel that drives employees to go above and beyond the typical. When employee investment reaches that level, you’ll get performances that could truly impact your company’s bottom line. The employee recognition program at The Broadmoor is over the top—and they’ve designed it that way. The annual employee of the year is treated to an all expenses paid vacation for his or her family. The assistant director of human resources said, “When it’s announced, we want it to be a cry on the stage type of moment like the Academy Awards” and “We want our employees to want that moment.” Obviously, most of our companies are not the size of The Broadmoor and can’t dole out such a prize. But the philosophy behind it is exactly like the free coffee. And we should all think of a colleague doing a great job when the smell of coffee hits our nose from time to time.

The 2012 Water Well Journal Buyers Guide starts on page 44. Viewing is essential if you are in the market for new equipment or tools. The guide is divided into four sections. The first is an index of products and services. It’s followed by a directory of manufacturers, a directory of suppliers and manufacturer representatives, and a listing of trade names and their manufacturers. The index features a detailed list of products and services used in the industry. The directories feature equipment descriptions and complete contact information, making it easier when it’s time to make that next purchase. Associate Editor Mike Price writes about the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) initiative and how it relates to those working in the groundwater industry in his cover story, “Complying with CSA 2010” on page 23. The Mike Price FMCSA is working to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and injuries on the nation’s highways with the CSA 2010 program. There are seven items covered under CSA 2010, including unsafe driving, driver fit-

Price provides helpful information and tips including making sure the drill rig’s brakes are working properly, taking the time to fasten all cargo, and reminding employees about the nationwide ban on the use of handheld devices while driving. The accompanying sidebar article lists useful online resources for understanding CSA 2010. Hauling hazardous materials is the subject of freelance writer Jennifer Strawn’s feature article titled “Avoiding Costly Mistakes” on page 27. Strawn points out that the regulations on hauling hazardous materials covers hundreds of pages, so mistakes can be made. She goes over five errors that happen regularly. They are: not understanding the Materials of Trade regulaJennifer Strawn tions; hauling a portable tank of fuel with other hazardous materials onboard; unknowingly transporting hazardous materials in placardable amounts; your company not keeping up insurance, training, or requirements; and allowing drivers without a hazmat endorsement to haul placardable amounts of hazardous materials. The monthly installment of Safety Matters is titled “Breathing Clean Air.” Beginning on page 32, columnist Mary C.

Franklin Electric Breaks Ground on New Headquarters

Franklin Electric Co. Inc. hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new corporate headquarters on April 20 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Officials from Franklin Electric, Fort Wayne, and Allen County gathered for the event at the site of Franklin’s new global corporate headquarters and Engineering Center of Excellence that is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013. After a brief presentation, representatives from Franklin Electric, the Allen County Board of Commissioners, and Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry shoveled dirt to kick off the construction at the job site. The new building will occupy nearly 120,000 square feet of space, accommodate the company’s approximate 225 employees, and allow for future growth. The facility also will feature a state-of-the-art laboratory that will provide a doubling of the number of test stations. This will enable Franklin Elec-

The first shovels of dirt are tossed at the Franklin Electric groundbreaking with Therese Brown (Allen County commissioner), Gregg Sengstack (Franklin Electric president and COO), Scott Trumbull (Franklin Electric chairman and CEO), John Haines (Franklin Electric vice president and CFO), Linda Bloom (Allen County commissioner), and Tom Henry (Fort Wayne mayor).

tric to significantly expand its research, development, design, and testing capacity. “Over the years, Franklin Electric has outgrown our existing office space, and our physical capacity to develop and test new products has become severely constrained,” Franklin Electric CEO and Chairman of the Board Scott Trumbull said. “As we emerged from the recent recession, the issue was therefore not whether we should build a new headquarters and lab, but where it should be.”

The facility will feature geothermal heating and cooling and incorporate aesthetic exterior water features (pond, fountains) to act as functional parts of the system. Franklin Electric Vice President, CFO, and Secretary John J. Haines began the event by thanking Allen County’s Board of Commissioners, Linda Bloom, Nelson Peters, and Therese Brown, and Mayor Henry for working with Franklin in the process of selecting the Fort Wayne site, which is 35 miles north of Franklin’s Bluffton, Indiana, headquarters (its home since 1952). County commissioners Brown and Peters then spoke briefly about the economic impact that Franklin Electric will provide the area with the new headquarters. Trumbull concluded his comments to the ceremony attendees by saying he was glad the company will be able to continue to call northern Indiana home. “We’re excited about being a growing and contributing member of the Fort Wayne community,” he said. “I’m sure we’ll be here for the next 50 years.” -By Thad Plumley

Housing Starts Rebound in March The U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the following new residential construction statistics for March 2012.

EPA Publishes Human Health Benchmarks for Pesticides in Water The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published a table of human health benchmarks for approximately 350 pesticides to enable states, water systems, and the public to better determine whether the detection of a pesticide in drinking water or source waters for drinking water june indicate a potential health risk. Advanced testing methods now allow pesticides to be detected in water at very low levels. These small amounts of pesticides detected in drinking water or source water for drinking water do not necessarily indicate a health risk. Concentrations of pesticides in drinking water that have the potential for cancer risk are not currently included in the human health benchmarks for pesticides table. The EPA intends to include these concentrations later. The table includes pesticide active ingredients for which health advisories or enforceable National Primary Drinking Water Regulations have not been developed. The EPA intends to update its online table of human health benchmarks for pesticides annually to ensure that the best available science is accessible to the public.

Price of Diesel Falls for Third Time in Four Weeks Transport Topics reports diesel fell for the third time in four weeks, doubling an earlier decline to a 4.2¢ drop to $4.085 a gallon, the Department of Energy said April 23. Gasoline, meanwhile, fell for the third straight week, down 5.2¢ to $3.87, DOE said following its weekly survey of filling stations. The diesel decline—the biggest since December 19—leaves it 1.3¢ below the same week a year ago. Gasoline’s decline was also the most since midDecember and Monday’s price is 0.9¢ below its year-ago level. Gas had gained 55.2¢ in 10 consecutive weekly increases before declining 7.1¢ in the past three weeks. Diesel’s $4.148 national average price two weeks ago was the highest since trucking’s main fuel was $4.208 on August 18, 2008. 14/ June 2012 Water Well Journal

Despite the recent declines, diesel has gained a cumulative 30.2¢ since its year-low $3.783 price on January 2. Crude oil fell 77¢ in late April to finish at $103.11 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, as Bloomberg reported. Each week, DOE surveys about 350 diesel filling stations to compile a national snapshot average price.

Study Shows Some Wells Have Too Much Radium About 3% of the wells in a study of untreated source water from 1270 domestic, public supply, and monitoring wells between 1987 and 2005 had combined radium concentrations greater than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s standard for drinking water. This is one of the findings of a recent study by the USGS, in cooperation with the EPA, to understand how radium is distributed in aquifers across the United States, and to develop a greater understanding of the conditions that control its release from aquifer materials. Radium is a naturally occurring radioactive element that is produced from the decay of radioactive elements such as uranium and thorium, and is a known carcinogen. Almost all wells in the study with radium concentrations greater than the EPA’s standard were located in the eastern United States. More importantly, one in five wells in the Mid-Continent and Ozark Plateau Cambro-Ordovician aquifer systems and in the North Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifer system had combined radium concentrations greater than the EPA standard. It is important to note that for this study untreated water was sampled, and that concentrations in sampled wells do not necessarily reflect the quality of finished water from wells with treatment systems. Three common factors were found to be associated with the highest radium concentrations in groundwater. These were oxygen-poor water, acidic conditions (low pH), and high concentrations of dissolved solids. This study was funded by the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program and the EPA Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water.

he first handful of safety tailgate talks given this year at Summit Drilling Co. Inc. in Bridgewater, New Jersey, focused on a timely

subject. Cell phone use behind the wheel. New Jersey, along with 36 other states, bans texting while driving, as well as speaking on a phone without a hands-free device. Today, a New Jersey driving-while-phoning ticket costs $130. “We repeated it again and again to our guys not to use their phone,” says Denis A. Crayon, CHST, director of health and safety for the environmental specialty drilling services firm. “We haven’t had any issue of our drivers being pulled over, ticketed, or reported for using a cell phone while operating our vehicles.” Crayon, like others in the groundwater industry, has in place a distracted driving policy for his employees. It’s aimed at keeping drivers and others on Mike Price is the associate editor of Water Well Journal.

the road safe while helping the company’s rating under the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s fairly new Compliance, Safety, Accountability initiative called CSA 2010. The FMCSA is working to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and injuries on the nation’s highways by means of the program. Vehicles affected by CSA 2010 include any interstate carrier that is required to have a U.S. DOT number, including intrastate carriers required by their home state of registration if that state requires the carrier to file as a registrant. It doesn’t matter what you do, but what you drive under CSA 2010. Any vehicle—be it a three-quarter-ton service truck, water well pump hoist, or special mobile equipment designed for off-road use (rig)—driven interstate over 10,001 pounds or greater is a commercial motor vehicle and is covered under Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is required when driving vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds, any combined gross vehicle weight rating (two units) of 26,001 or more pounds, any vehicle that is re-

quired to be placarded, or carriers of 16 or more passengers including the driver. There are seven items covered under CSA 2010, which went into effect in mid-summer 2010: 1. Unsafe driving 2. Fatigued driving 3. Driver fitness 4. Drugs/alcohol 5. Vehicle maintenance 6. Cargo securement 7. Crash experience. Crayon circled back to CSA training this spring, giving safety talk refreshers to the staff of 35 field employees on among other things brake adjustments and training, vehicle inspection, cargo securement, and electrical and driving safety. “If you haven’t done an efficient DOT walk-around inspection or if you haven’t done one in a few years or many years like a lot of us, you forget some of the finer points,” says Crayon, a 20-year veteran of the drilling industry who is in his third year as health and safety director. “We began retraining because cargo securement is huge.”

CSA 2010/from page 23 Fred McAninch travels quite a bit as owner and partner of The Rig Doctors, a company that does everything from selling everyday parts to complete overhauls, restorations, and remounts. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, McAninch visits customers from time to time throughout the country and must stay current on all driver information. “What I can see is the drivers who have the CDLs need to be aware of more scrutiny about their general health, like blood pressure,” says McAninch, who is chair of the DOT/OSHA Subcommittee for the National Ground Water Association. “The way I see it is you’re really going to have to keep your medical end up more than anything.” McAninch, who was the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation’s 2006 William A. McEllhiney Lecturer, travels not only for business but to speak about safety at industry shows. He recently overheard spot checks honing in on up-to-date licenses and medical cards. “It just pays to keep up to speed on this stuff and have it readily available in the truck door,” he says. In addition to staying off the phone while driving, McAninch stressed these two points: ● Secure your cargo: “A lot of guys take and throw stuff up on the deck of the rig. It needs to be looked at how secure is it? It’s amazing what falls off a drilling rig. I’ve seen table master bushings where a guy hits a bump and an 80-pound steel object just flipped right out of the table because he didn’t put a lock on it. There’s a lock right on the table. All you got to do is just slide it in so it stays in the rig. There’s a reason for the lock.” McAninch believes the reason for the lack of cargo securement is that it’s not given much thought. “They’ve been doing it for 30 years; throw it up on the deck and go because it’s never come off. All you gotta do is hit a bump just right and a breakout fork—40 pounds of steel— is on the road and if it bounces it could get ugly.” ● Check your brakes: McAninch says good working brakes are often taken 24/ June 2012 Water Well Journal

That thing weighs 50,000 pounds and if you got to stop on a dime, you’re in deep trouble. They just never check them. “I get remounts in here and I’ve pulled rigs off of trucks that should’ve been scrapped 10 years ago because of bad axles, axle mounts, etc. They’re actually unsafe.” McAninch also recommends midto large-size companies consider hiring someone who will monitor the company’s employees’ driving and

medical records as well as driver’s licenses to be compliant under CSA 2010. A thorough pre-trip inspection prevents most violations during the day, says Jim Feddern, Ohio State Highway Patrol motor carrier enforcement manager in Columbus, Ohio. “Then if something does happen during the day, the post-trip notifies the company that a tire went flat, light went out. End of the day it gets fixed for the next day.” Overlooking an issue—even a minor one like clearance lights out—during a pre-trip inspection can result in a deduction of points. waterwelljournal.com


“They start in the morning and do a pre-trip and got a couple of lights out and think, ‘Ah, I’ll get those tonight when I get back,’” Feddern says. “Lo and behold, we stop them because we don’t see any clearance lights working. “During most pre-trips, I don’t want to say all drivers, but a lot of drivers might check to see if the taillights, stoplights, and turn signals work and that’s it. Then they go. They really don’t get out and walk around the truck, check tires, and things of that nature.” Feddern preaches the same message to both carriers and drivers: 1. Take the time to conduct a quality pre-trip inspection 2. Pay attention to what happens to the truck during the day 3. Fix any issues when they occur. “That prevents a lot,” he says. “Not until CSA kicked in and points were associated with violations did people start paying attention.” Roger E. Renner, MGWC, a member of NGWA’s DOT/OSHA Subcommittee, along with Crayon, advises employers to seek continuing education to understand CSA 2010 requirements. Many professional development options exist, whether through the FMCSA classes held in several cities for free, state department of transportation classes, or presentations on CSA 2010 given by FMCSA or state department professionals at state water well association events. NGWA will host a Webinar titled “Understanding and Negotiating DOT Issues and Requirements for the Groundwater Industry” on September 12 and 13 (see sidebar), and the 2012 South Atlantic Well Drillers Jubilee, July 21-23 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, will offer classes on CSA 2010. Crayon, who has arthritis in his knee and a torn rotator cuff, can sympathize with drillers who are suffering from the pains of aging but still need to maintain a sense of safety. “We’re expected to do it so no one gets killed,” Crayon says. “The reality is something as simple as looking at your tires is important for not only the groundwater guys but those doing geothermal. “Running on a construction site for geothermal, you don’t always know when you’ve tagged something.

Avoiding Costly Mistakes Make sure you know all of the regulations if you’re transporting hazardous materials. By Jennifer Strawn hether it’s interstate or intrastate, hauling hazardous materials isn’t something you take lightly. But when the hazardous materials regulations in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) Parts 171-180 issued by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration spans hundreds of pages, it’s easy to make mistakes if you’re not careful. Some companies like E.H. Renner & Sons Inc. in Elk River, Minnesota, choose to haul hazardous materials in placardable amounts—that is, amounts of material that warrant a hazardous material placard be mounted on the vehicle. It hauls diesel, propane, and explosives regularly.

In general, what are called Table 1 hazardous materials (such as explosives) need to be placarded at any amount. Table 2 hazardous materials (such as flammable gas or combustible liquids) need placards when the combined amount exceeds 1000 pounds or when transported in bulk packages greater than 119 gallons in capacity. When you haul placardable amounts, you need to be registered as a hazardous materials hauler with the U.S. Department of Transportation, your drivers need hazmat endorsements on their commercial driver’s licenses, and you need to comply with a whole host of insurance, security, and training requirements. That’s why others like WDC Exploration & Wells based in Sacramento, California, avoid hauling hazardous materials in placardable quantities. “We always require hauling in nonplacardable amounts,” says Jim Wright, director of health and safety for WDC Exploration & Wells. “So when we purchase our transport fuel tanks, we build them to hold less than the placard-

able amount and have our hazardous materials delivered.” Whether you choose to haul hazardous materials or you choose not to, you still need to understand the regulations and how it is they apply to your business. Here are five costly mistakes you or your company could be making when transporting hazardous materials on the job.

Mistake #1: You don’t understand the Materials of Trade regulations. In general, most groundwater contracting companies and pump installers won’t need a hazmat endorsement because of the Materials of Trade (MOT) exception. It’s a rule every contractor should be familiar with, says Roger Renner, president of E.H. Renner & Sons. “It’s surprising how many people would ask, ‘What’s MOT?’” he says.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS/continues on page 28 Water Well Journal June 2012 27/


HAZARDOUS MATERIALS/from page 27

What hazardous materials qualify as MOT?

“They’re just not up to speed whatsoever.” As defined by 49 CFR Section 173.6, Materials of Trade are “hazardous materials, other than hazardous waste, that are carried on a motor vehicle: ●

To be a Material of Trade, the hazardous material must fit into any one of the following classes or divisions.

To protect the health and safety of the motor vehicle operator or passengers To support the operation or maintenance of a motor vehicle (including its auxiliary equipment) To directly support a principal business of a private motor carrier that is other than transportation by motor vehicle.”

This means you can haul safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, gasoline, and other hazardous materials without needing placards, hazmat endorsements, shipping papers, emergency response paperwork, or formal training. You are, however, subject to liability insurance requirements found in 49 CFR 387. But that doesn’t mean you can load up your truck and head off to the job site without paying attention to what and how much you’re transporting. It’s important to know what qualifies as MOT and be familiar with the weight limits under the law. Even though MOT won’t need placards, they still need to be packaged correctly and be labeled and marked. In general, materials should be in the manufacturer’s original packaging or comparable packaging that is leak tight and sift proof, securely closed, and properly tied down to protect against shifting and damage. Each item should be labeled with its common name or shipping name and be labeled with “RQ” if it contains a reportable quantity. Each individual package cannot exceed MOT weight limits: ● Materials that are a high-hazardous material (Packing Group I) can be 1 pound for solids or 1 pint for liquids. ● Medium-hazard materials (Packing Groups II or III other than dangerous when wet materials) can be 66 pounds for solids or 8 gallons of liquid. 28/ June 2012 Water Well Journal

Dangerous when wet materials in Packing Groups II or III must be 1 ounce or less. Each cylinder containing flammable or non-flammable gases may not weigh more than 220 pounds. A diluted mixture of a Class 9 material of no more than 2% concentration (miscellaneous hazardous materials) can be transported in a tank with up to 400 gallons in capacity. Class 1 explosives, Division 2.3 gases, Division 4.2 spontaneously combustible, poisonous by inhalation, or self-reactive materials are now allowed to be MOT.

Most Table 2 materials would fall under medium-hazard materials, says Carlisle Smith of the Ohio Public Utility Commission. So each individual pack-

age cannot exceed 66 pounds or 8 gallons to qualify as MOT. Additionally, all MOT materials on the truck can’t exceed 440 pounds. When the aggregate amount exceeds 440 pounds, you need shipping papers and emergency response information, Smith says. You wouldn’t need to placard or have a hazmat endorsement on your CDL unless you’re hauling more than 1000 pounds.

Mistake #2: You haul a portable tank of fuel with other hazardous materials onboard. Carrying a portable tank of fuel is an exception to the MOT rules, but it’s one that gets a lot of contractors into trouble. “It’s where a lot of contractors get stuck,” Renner says. “They figure waterwelljournal.com


transporting hazardous materials in non-placardable quantities. You also need to register as a hazardous materials hauler with the DOT. Without registering with the DOT, you can’t placard any of your vehicles.

they’re doing fine and they haul the 119-gallon portable tanks with another MOT and they’re over the limit.” When full, the portable tank exceeds MOT weight limits. So when you start adding other hazardous materials onto the truck, you easily exceed the 440-pound limit or are hauling a prohibited combination of materials such as acids for well cleaning and diesel fuel. “You can’t have one pound of MAPP gas in the side box with a 119-gallon fuel tank,” Renner says. “That will get you a ticket from not having hazmat endorsement. They’ll write you up so many darn ways to breakfast, and it’s going to cost you a lot of money.” Also, the portable tank should weigh less than 1000 pounds in capacity to avoid the placarding requirement. Even if the tank is not full, if it holds more than 1001 pounds, it would need to be placarded. When hauling a portable fuel tank with a capacity of more than 1000 pounds (119 gallons of diesel), you should not haul any other hazardous materials, Renner says. If the tank is permanently attached to the truck, however, it’s not considered a part of the regulations.

Mistake #5: You allow drivers without a hazmat endorsement to haul placardable amounts of hazardous materials. Your company may have only one or two drivers with hazmat endorsements and those drivers are tied up on the job, out sick or out on vacation, and you need to move placardable quantities of diesel fuel just a few miles down the road. Don’t be tempted to let commercial drivers without a hazmat endorsement drive the vehicle. If you get caught, the truck is placed out of service and you’d need to find someone to transport the truck away from the scale. Renner avoids this type of situation by requiring all of his drivers with a CDL to have a hazmat endorsement and a Class A license. That way, any of his drivers can fill in when needed. The best way to avoid any of these costly mistakes, Renner says, is determine what work you do with hazardous materials and decide whether you need to haul hazardous materials or stay out of it entirely. “You can’t do it halfway. Either you decide you’re a hazardous materials hauler and you jump in with both feet or you avoid it by all means,” Renner says. “You can’t do both.” WWJ

Mistake #3: You unknowingly transport hazardous materials in placardable amounts. Under the regulations, any amount of Table 1 materials (such as explosives) and more than 1001 pounds of Table 2 materials in any combination requires placarding. “This is where a lot of companies get tripped up,” Smith says. You might have two drums of two different Table 2 hazardous materials: one that’s 510 pounds and one that’s 500 pounds. Because each container is under 1000 pounds, a driver might think the truck doesn’t need placards, but that’s not the case, Smith says. Both drums together add up to more than 1000 pounds, so you would need to placard for all the materials on the truck.

We don’t just supply geothermal products, we specialize in them.

Mistake #4: Your company doesn’t keep up insurance, training, or requirements. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations require at least $1 million in public liability coverage up to a minimum of $5 million in public liability insurance coverage, depending on what you’re carrying, Smith says. The annual premium for that type of coverage, Renner says, could run a company about $10,000 in annual premium. “That cuts down drastically on the number of well contractors who haul hazardous materials,” Renner adds. “It’s too expensive.” If you do haul hazardous materials, don’t be tempted to skimp on coverage. When a driver is pulled over, the officer isn’t just checking the CDL, the officer also checks for the appropriate amount of liability coverage. When you haul hazardous materials in placardable quantities, you’re not just required to keep adequate insurance, but you also must make sure your drivers receive specific training every three years that’s above and beyond what’s required for

30/ June 2012 Water Well Journal

For the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts.

Orton received the award at the 2011 NGWA Groundwater Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. Water Well Journal: What are your fondest memories as executive director of the Nebraska Well Drillers Association? Lee Orton: I think the fondest memory is one of a recurring nature. Watching the professional growth and the changes in self-respect of this industry throughout the licensing implementation for a generation of seasoned water well contractors and the steady transition of those professionals to the next generation of professionals working today for a better industry still is enough to make me proud to be a part of that growth. A fond memory indeed. WWJ: The water well industry has changed quite a bit since you joined the Nebraska Well Drillers Association. What have been the most noticeable changes for you in the past 10 years? Lee: The general acceptance of the responsibilities of being a water well professional in Nebraska. The interest of the next generation of water well professionals in their business and in their association. The engaging of the profession in local and state government leadership and the commitment of our members to be involved in protecting groundwater resources. WWJ: The struggle over water rights is becoming more common in the United States, most notably in New Mexico with the Bounds v. State of New Mexico case. How do you see this trend evolving in the next five years? Lee: We have watched as the issues about water rights in groundwater have elevated and changed across the coun-

Lee Orton, JD try. Groundwater is administered by the doctrine of correlative rights in Nebraska that requires sharing of the available supply among overlying landowners. We have generally adopted laws and regulations in Nebraska that allow for small production wells to be allowed routinely with registration and well logs to maintain sound records while more strictly regulating the development of large capacity water wells. Many parts of Nebraska now restrict new development of large capacity water wells. New developments are restricted in those areas requiring offsets of any new supply demands. Case law in Nebraska has in the past required groundwater users who adversely impact other overlying users to compensate them with cash, limitation on use, or improvement of the harmed system. We expect that with reasonable further development of groundwater these methods will serve our needs into the foreseeable future. We believe we have evolved into a water well permit and registration system in Nebraska that will protect essential water use requirements and manage other water uses to protect essential preferences. WWJ: You’ve written a paper on underground water storage and rewaterwelljournal.com


covery and published numerous other water-related papers. How do you see the United States handling potential water shortage issues in the future? Lee: With many limits protecting federal reserved water interests and other federal limitations aside, generally the federal government has left to the states and to its local governing entities the decisions regarding water and water management. I expect that to be the rule of future involvement as well. Water shortages that transcend state boundaries are one clear exception to that rule, and Nebraska currently is involved in litigation between itself and Colorado and Kansas on the Republican River, which flows through each of those states. The ultimate decision in that litigation could set new or different standards for water shortage management in these states and perhaps nationwide. The problems of water shortage are the result of demands for water in areas where water availability is limited. Moving water to water-short areas has been easier than moving demands. That will continue. So states and local governments need to do a better job of water policy planning to avoid those inadequacies. Water laws, water sciences, water resources data, and political realities all need to be respected. Demand for water must be responsible. Population growth will continue to stress the available supply unless regulated more. Federal involvement will be the last resort however. WWJ: The Nebraska Grout Study was formed in 2001 and is ongoing. What do you think is the biggest piece of information to come from that research so far? Lee: The Nebraska Grout Study resulted from an education workshop our association sponsored. Our project installed a clear-cased water well in order to show actual placement of gravel pack and grout materials to educators and regulators. The grout materials that were placed failed. The study began. The most important information has been that grout materials are available to accomplish the work needed to protect the groundwater and serve the needs for the water well. Careful design and installation are essential. With the use of Twitter @WaterWellJournl

“The good contractors are always watching for new opportunities. The water well professional must be better business operators.”

site-specific grout materials using a responsible routine for selection and placement of that material, we will increase exponentially the successful use of available product. WWJ: How important is professional development in terms of contractors willing to change to become better? Lee: Professional development and willingness to change to become better go hand in hand. Better professional preparation, training, and continued training through the use of appropriate continuing education programs fosters and delivers better industry professionals. While our professional industry was good before licensing and before required continuing education, our professional industry today is better still. WWJ: What can state associations do to help encourage more professional development and provide the support its members need? Lee: An industry association that is weak, limited in membership involvement, or without an active presence will also be weak in its service to members and to other nonmember industry professionals. In today’s active political climate and in a time when many professionals are regulated by law and regulation, the industry association representing that profession must be active and develop a presence with legislative and administrative branches of the government with whom their members must deal. Working with policy makers and regulatory agencies needs to be done all the time, not just when someone is displeased with an action or a program. Involvement with that process needs regular attention. That is what a state association can do and one thing that will serve its members and increase its membership. Nebraska’s water well association—a state with a well-educated profession—

furnishes the majority of the continuing education available for maintaining license proficiency. That helps members and the association as well. The old adage “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link” applies. WWJ: The slow economy has affected everyone in the groundwater industry. What kind of advice would you give someone to survive these tough times? Lee: Fortunately, Nebraska is not experiencing a “slow economy.” Business is great. Agriculture is the basis of our economy and agriculture is doing well. However, we have had some “slow” times in the past. Those times have reduced the business numbers, but those times have also redirected business plans. The good contractors are always watching for new opportunities. Those in the last number of years have included water well activity in water quality investigations and management, geothermal construction, water well efficiency evaluation and well replacement, operation and maintenance programs, and other options. The water well professional must be better business operators. Careful work and inventory control, better care of the specialized equipment needed by the water well industry, and many other common business practices used by every successful business can be applied. And, lastly, remember, you cannot be the supplier to every customer. Charge a fair price for your work based on your carefully analyzed cost of doing business. Don’t cut your prices to get the job. If you cannot make a profit, you will not be in business. WWJ: Lastly, what do you think are the critical issues facing the water well drilling industry today? Lee: The need to continue professional growth. The need to become involved—in good times and bad times—with the regulatory people with whom the water well industry must work. The need to prepare their successors for a regulated community involvement, perhaps by being proactive in placing industry professionals on boards and committees involved with future water policy. Be sure to be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem. As I just read in another professional publication: “Be sure to be at the table. If you’re not at the table, then you’re on the menu.” WWJ Water Well Journal June 2012 31/

Breathing Clean Air What well drillers need to know about respiratory protection.

ore than 400,000 patients a year are diagnosed with respiratory disease that resulted from occupational exposures. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that number is probably lower as most respiratory diseases are not even known and therefore hard to categorize and track. But even still it is a significant number. What is known is that there are many different types of airborne contaminants to which water well drillers can be exposed. These include airborne biohazards such as viruses, molds, and bacteria, and can result in respiratory diseases the worker does not recognize as job-related. Moreover, there are diseases from exposures to different materials that haven’t even been identified. For instance, a worker who has been welding could have symptoms of diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting and believe he has the flu when in fact he’s suffering from the toxic effects of exposure to welding, cuttings, and burning fumes (called “welding fume fever”).

M

Who Has to Wear a Respirator? An estimated 5 million workers are required to wear respirators in 1.3 million workplaces throughout the United States. Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environMary C. DeVany, a certified safety professional and certified hazardous materials manager, is president of DeVany Industrial Consultants in Vancouver, Washington, a firm that provides a full range of safety and industrial hygiene services.

ments, harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases, fibers, fumes, vapors, and sprays. These hazards can cause cancer, lung impairment, other diseases, even death. Respiratory protection for the well drilling industry is addressed in Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards for construction industries. The OSHA respirator standard applies to all occupational airborne exposures to contaminated air where the employee is: ● ● ●

Exposed to a hazardous level of an airborne contaminant Required by the employer to wear a respirator Permitted to wear a respirator.

Four major duties are imposed by each of these standards. These duties are: 1. Use engineering controls (such as forced-draft ventilation) where feasible to control the hazard 2. Provide an appropriate respirator 3. Ensure the use of an appropriate respirator 4. Institute a respiratory protection program that complies with the rest of the standard.

What Kind of Respirator to Wear Exotic organisms, dumped oil, and all manner of hazardous materials can easily contaminate a water well drilling site. If the hazard the worker is exposed to is from airborne molds, fungi, or bacteria, a disposable dust mask should be enough. This mask, called an N-95, looks like

a paper dust mask with two straps. The double strap is important to assure a better fit for the face and better protection from dust and mist, which is generally what workers in water wells will be exposed to. Employees who are working around generators, compressors, or other machinery that is capable of throwing an oil mist need a P-95 filter respirator, which is oil proof. If workers are cutting, welding, burning, or working with asbestos, they are required to use an N-100 respirator with HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters because welding fumes and asbestos particles are much tinier than dust and mist. When working with solvents or chemical cleaning materials, such as those used to degrease parts, organic vapor cartridges are in order. They screw in and out of a rubber/silicone respirator that can cover the whole face or just the nose and mouth.

What You Need for a Respirator Program If a company is not sure its workers are exposed, a job site evaluation should be conducted to identify and evaluate any respiratory hazards in the workplace. Employers must make a “reasonable estimate” of the employee exposures anticipated to occur as a result of those hazards—including those likely to be encountered in reasonably foreseeable emergency situations—and must also identify the physical state and chemical form of the contaminants. Whether the standard mandates it or not, the employer should conduct the waterwelljournal.com


respiratory hazard assessment to protect the workers. Respirators are not that expensive and considerably cheaper than lost workdays or worker compensation claims as a result of exposure. After the company evaluates the job site for the nature of the exposure and determines what kind of respirators the workers need, the next step is for the worker to fill out an OSHA-mandated medical history form. Respirators are a medical device, so people need to be evaluated to verify if wearing one might do more harm than good. For someone who has asthma, other respiratory diseases, or an insulindependent type of diabetes, it could end up being more stressful to breathe through a respirator. Based on the medical history and exam, a doctor will determine if any medical tests are warranted, and if the worker is fit to wear a respirator. Part of a respirator program is a responsible fit test. All respirators that rely on a mask-to-face seal need to be annually checked with either qualitative or quantitative methods to determine whether the mask provides an acceptable fit to a wearer. The qualitative fit test relies on a subjective sensation (taste, irritation, smell) of the respirator wearer to a particular test agent. The quantitative test uses instruments to measure face-seal leakage. The relative workplace exposure level determines what constitutes an acceptable fit and which fit test procedure is required. The proper functioning of respirators and making sure the devices actually are protecting the user require a regular inspection, maintenance, and cleaning schedule. Unless they are disposable, respirators should be inspected for basic function prior to each use and cleaned after each day’s use to prevent the occurrence of unsanitary conditions. This is an important task because exhaled warm moist breath projects food particles, providing a ripe breeding ground for mold and fungi to grow inside the mask. Training on how to properly put on and take off the respirator is part of the respirator program. Respirators also have to be stored away from any exposure area in a clean location away from heat and sunlight. Twitter @WaterWellJournl

Part of respirator training is understanding its uses and limitations—what hazards the respirator is protecting the worker against. Every year, refresher training in respirator use is required along with annual recertification of the medical evaluation and fit testing. The employer’s responsibility within the respirator protection program is ● ●

The Fine Points of Efficiency Minor improvements can make a big difference when it comes to an efficient system.

n e-mail inquiry from a reader has prompted me to take a break from our groundwater treatment series to discuss some of the finer points of raising efficiency in a water system. Some of you may remember back to the earlier days of this column when I wrote an article dedicated to efficiency and what it meant. Now I will expand on the topic and cite examples of how to increase efficiency in specific water system applications. Efficiency—that single word may have different meanings to different people, but never has it had more validity than in today’s world with rising energy costs. To the typical sales person, efficiency means convincing you their product will deliver more of something for less money. To engineers, it means producing some type of final outcome—whether it results in work or a product—with the least amount of effort. Efficiency is basically the difference between a theoretical or perfect result and the actual result of a task, effort, or process. In our day-to-day world in the water well business, efficiency usually applies to electrical, mechanical, or chemical efficiency. There are ways to improve efficiency in each category.

A

So, What Does It Really Mean? The dictionary defines efficient as “acting to produce an effect with a minimum of waste or effort, or exhibiting a high ratio of output to input.” Both of these definitions obviously apply to the water well industry even though each has a different application. Our goal in design and application is to develop a system with the highest practical level of operating efficiency. And in many cases we have achieved these improvements on many levels. But it is important to remember there will always be some loss of efficiency in any process or effort regardless of any improvements, streamlining, or enhanced design of the system. Many of the increases in efficiency of a given machine or process can be directly correlated to customer demand or Ed Butts, PE, CPI, is the chief engineer at 4B Engineering & Consulting, Salem, Oregon.

government intervention. For example, a prompting from congressional action led to the revised U.S. codes related to energy. These codes and standards set minimum requirements for energy-efficient design and construction for new and renovated buildings that impact energy use and emissions for the life of the building. This is especially important since buildings account for almost 40% of the current U.S. energy use, as much as two-thirds of the electricity consumption, and one-eighth of the water. With buildings being such a main source of energy usage in the United States, along with the surrounding issues associated with high energy usage, it is imperative that buildings abide by these new codes. This will ensure higher efficiency since using more efficient methods and materials initially when constructing the buildings will help cut down on the total energy usage over the life of the facility. There are new building energy codes for both commercial and residential buildings as well as other types of energy usage. In addition, recognizing that electric motors account for the greatest single consumption group of electrical power, new regulations and attractive rebate programs have been adopted for the retrofit of older less-efficient motors and for new premium efficiency motors. These new motors can have a direct application on well pump and booster pump applications. Beyond the improvements we can make in electric motors, there are other seemingly minor system or component improvements we can make as well. In many cases, these improvements can appear to be so minor as to be insignificant or meaningless. However, when factored over the life of the unit or yearly operating hours, they can readily add up to an energy cost savings that is well over the cost of the investment itself. Although improving the efficiency of a system or pumping plant is usually tied directly to a savings of electrical energy, there are various types of peripheral methods that may also save energy and, therefore, raise efficiency.

Operational or System Methods When feasible, select pumping plants to operate during “off-peak” periods. These periods, usually during the early morning or late evening hours, may provide lower energy consumption costs than another time of day. In reservoir fill

ENGINEERING/from page 34 applications, this may allow refilling of the reservoir during a period with relatively low consumption. In most cases, use of a throttling valve is advantageous to “water shedding.” Although the use of this process must be verified for the specific pumping unit involved, usually throttling a pump back to a lower flow rate will provide greater energy savings than recirculating the water back to the source or otherwise wasting the water. Always use high quality and accurate pressure gauges and flowmeters for tracking data. Even though this may seem like a no-brainer, developing and maintaining an accurate and effective data collection process requires not only accurate data, but consistently accurate data. Variations or inaccuracies in the method of data collection can easily lead to wrong assumptions and decisions. Consider “non-pumping” energy losses. Once again, many times the energy losses associated with non-vital functions such as the lighting, heating, cooling, or utilization transformers within a pump station may appear to be minor or insignificant. But when these losses mount up, such as for continuous lighting or heating, the energy losses can become extreme.

Improving Pump Efficiency Using pump components with low hydraulic friction such as bronze, porcelain, and stainless steel will cause lower drag within the pump itself and thus lower pumping costs. Specify a C-10/C-20/C-30 polished finished on impeller passages.

Little known tricks such as backfiling, dynamic balancing, or polishing of impellers can also raise efficiency a point or two, which can save horsepower. Select the pump to operate as close as possible to the best efficiency point (BEP) or window at all times if and when possible. Improve piping by using larger suction and discharge piping than required, eliminating tees, ells, and restricted piping where feasible. Using piping materials with the lowest friction factors, such as PVC, can also benefit a system. Even modifying a control, isolation, or check valve on the pump’s discharge line can pay long-term dividends. Depending on the valve size, flow rate, and duty, changing out a standard globe style of inline control valve with an angle or “wye” pattern type of control valve can save up to 2–4 psi or up to 10 feet of head. For a valve used strictly for isolation of the station, using a fully opening valve type such as a gate valve rather than one with an inline obstruction like a plug or butterfly valve can also lower the head loss through the valve and save power.

Increasing Motor Efficiency With regard to motors, increasing the wire sizes, optimizing voltages, improving the power factor, using premium efficiency motors, providing a clean and cool operating environment, and de-rating a motor’s horsepower for a given load can raise the efficiency of a pumping plant by as much as 5% through electrical changes alone.

The use of high performance coating on a bowl assembly can provide lower disc friction to the impellers, resulting in energy savings. A coating such as Scotchkote 134 (SK134) fusion bonded epoxy can cost between $500 and $800 per stage to apply, but can raise efficiency by as much as 2–4 points. For example, on a pumping unit designed for 1000 gpm at 300 feet TDH, this can result in a horsepower savings of up to four brake horsepower. At 4000 hours per year of operation, this can result in an energy savings of more than $1200 in the first year alone. During the design of new or replacement deep well pumping units, consider the relative difference in bowl and motor efficiency and service life between submersible and vertical turbine units. Although the capital investment of a submersible pumping system will almost always be less than a comparable sized vertical turbine unit, the combined efficiency of the bowl and motor will often be up to 10–15 points higher for the vertical turbine unit. For example, with a pumping plant designed for 1000 gpm at 300 feet TDH, the difference in hourly pumping costs can amount to $1.30 per hour or $5200 per 4000-hour operating period. In addition, the service life of a vertical turbine unit is often greater than a submersible due to lower speed and accessibility factors. Obviously, these ratios don’t always apply, so the designer must evaluate these factors on a case-by-case basis.

ground loops or arcing of imposed voltages within the bearings. Various methods exist to protect against this occurring, but the most reliable method involves effective and complete grounding and bonding of the drive and motor.

Conclusion As power costs continue to rise each year, the need to fully consider the efficiency of each item in our pumping systems will also continue to rise. I want to remind each of you just how important efficiency has become in our world and there are ways you can improve it with just a little thought. Consider all of the possibilities—no matter how insignificant they may seem—and you may find that they might just offer some real dividends. Until next month, work safe and smart. WWJ

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) Variable speed or frequency drives have rapidly become a favored method for energy savings and improving system efficiency. However, they are not without their drawbacks and limitations, so the designer must consider specific features to provide the highest possible efficiency and extend the life of the drive and the motor being driven. ● As with most electronic devices, VFDs do not care for heat. Not only will the life of the unit suffer but the operating efficiency will also. For these reasons, proper ventilation and cooling must be observed. ● When using a VFD with submersible motors or other motors with a long cable run between the motor and drive (less than 50 feet), a condition known as “reflected wave voltage” can occur. This simply means the drive may be exposed to a returned level of voltage back from the motor in values hundreds of times higher than rated for. Various protective devices such as rectifiers are used to negate these conditions and should be implemented on all installations with long cable offsets. ● When sizing the VFD, consider the actual amperage the unit will need to operate, not just the horsepower. Since a submersible motor will draw higher current than a comparable horsepower standard motor, sizing for horsepower may not provide an adequate reserve capability for the higher current. In many cases, increasing the unit size by one can protect against this potential. This is a common issue on retrofit installations. ● Specific types of installations, such as those on vertical hollow shaft or standard horizontal motors, can result in

Performance Standards How do you know when you’re doing a good job?

t has been a remarkable truth over the years that most people don’t know when they are doing a good job. And why don’t people know when they are doing a good job? Well, it’s actually quite simple. No one has told them. It shouldn’t be a surprise. Businesses in America fail to implement their strategy at an obscenely high level—more than 90% of businesses in this country fail to do so. The primary reason is because the employees don’t know the strategy of the company. How can this be? Communications. And that is also the reason why employees don’t know when they are doing a good job. I am an example of this. When I was working at a dealership, I asked for but never received a performance review. I remember one of my bosses asking me indignantly, “Did you get a raise?” When I replied that I had, he said that was the only performance review I needed. I told him I didn’t agree. I felt a performance review was a significant tool for the employee to learn what was necessary for their growth such that they could earn more money and opportunity. I guess the ultimate review was that this was a boss whom I eventually told, “I quit.”

You need to share with each employee what it is they do that is important to the customer, to the company, or their peers and coworkers. Sense of Pride But let’s go to the simple truth that most employees don’t know when they are doing a good job. This is truly a shame. There should be a sense of pride about a job well done. On a daily basis the employees, you and I, should know whether or not we are doing a good job. In Pat Lencioni’s book The Three Signs of a Miserable Job, he talks about “immeasureability.” He created this word because he couldn’t find an appropriate one to describe how an employee cannot measure their own performance. That idea by itself is interesting. Everyone should know at the end of every day whether or not they did a good job. I think most do, but I am talking about the formal measures for a job. What do you do? This is an interesting question and one that John Jenson discusses in The Clarity Imperative. Too often we do too many things—so many things that in fact nothing is memorable. You want your customers to know you for something important. You want a reputation for great customer service, providing solutions to problems, possessing good skills, having high parts availability, or owning good technical knowledge.

You need to share with each employee what it is they do that is important to the customer, to the company, or their peers and coworkers. They need to know. When that is known, they also need told what the standard of performance might be for each and every requirement and function of their jobs.

Metrics of a Job And there we go—standards of performance. These are the metrics for a job function or for a department. They are what we all strive to accomplish. Let’s step back a moment and deal with a few truths. ● ● ●

Everyone wants to do a good job Everyone can do more than they think they can Everyone is fundamentally lazy.

So if everyone wants to do a good job, don’t you think the boss would figure out what good performance looks like for each job? Perhaps it’s a measure of gross profit, expense management, or customer retention. These are rather significant performance elements, aren’t they? That means these are some of the standards you should share with employees, depending on your type of business: ● Gross profit ● Sales per employee ● Freight recovery ● Labor efficiency ● Inventory turnover ● Order service level ● Stock order efficiency with vendors.

I believe strongly one of the responsibilities of management is to help people develop and get better at their jobs. This is made much easier if we can develop performance standards for each job and share these standards with each employee for their particular job. Then we should provide the training and tools necessary to make them better. This is a management responsibility in my mind.

Forge a Path So start on a new path. Develop a job description for each function in the company. Determine what the key result areas are for each job. Develop performance standards for each of these key result areas for each job function. Then you can communicate to each employee these truths and work with them to determine what is standing in the way of them doing a better job—delivering better results. This will typically be training or tooling. Then it’s up to you to provide that. Management is really an interesting career. We manage processes, but we lead people. I believe we can lead people much more effectively if each and every employee knows what is expected from them, which means each employee knows when they go home at the end of a workday if they can say, “I did a good job today.” I hope this is something you can accomplish for your workers. The better they are at doing their jobs, the happier your customers will be. And the happier your customers are with your business, the more business they will give you. WWJ Circle card no. 8

Irrational Behavior Be careful. Emotion can lead to poor financial decisions. n all of the animal kingdom, only humans have the ability to employ reasoning in a way that allows us to reach rational decisions. Why is it, then, that we seem to misuse that ability so often, especially in important areas such as money matters? In coining the phrase “irrational exuberance” more than 15 years ago, former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan was thought to be warning us the stock market was irrationally overvalued. As it turns out, his comment may have foreshadowed a new field of study called behavioral economics—a new science that makes an effort to determine why supposedly rational humans make so many irrational decisions. When it comes to how we handle our money, there’s no shortage of irrational decisions. Consider the person who drives five miles to save three cents per gallon of gasoline, or the investor who consistently buys stocks at their highs and then panics when the market goes down and sells them at their lows.

fessionals, are prone to emotional and cognitive biases that lead to less-thanideal financial decisions. By identifying subconscious biases and understanding how they can hurt a portfolio’s return, investors can develop long-term financial plans to help lessen their impact.” Here are some of the most common and detrimental investor biases. Overconfidence “It’s easy to overestimate your own abilities in picking stocks while underestimating risks. Even professional money managers struggle to beat stock market indexes; the casual investor has even less chance,” Sullivan says. “It’s almost impossible to hold a day job and moonlight as manager of your individual-stocks portfolio,” he says. “Overconfidence frequently leaves investors with their eggs in far too few baskets, and with those baskets dangerously close to one another.” ● Loss Aversion According to behavioral economics proponents, many people have such a strong fear of losing money that avoiding a loss gives them more comfort and pleasure than making a gain. “Because of their loss aversion bias, some people will irrationally hold losing investments for longer than is financially advisable,” Sullivan says. “If an investor makes a speculative trade and it performs poorly, frequently he will continue to hold the investment even if new developments have made the company’s prospects yet more dismal. The inability to come to terms with an investment gone awry can lead investors to lose more money while hoping to recoup their original losses.” ● Anchoring Aversion to selling investments at a loss can also result from what econo●

mists call an anchoring bias. Some investors become “anchored” to the original purchase price of an investment. “If an investor paid $1,000,000 for his home during the peak of the frothy market in early 2007, he may insist that what he paid is the home’s true value, despite comparable homes currently selling for $700,000,” Sullivan explains. “This inability to adjust to the reality of market changes may disrupt the investor’s life should he need to sell the property, for example, to relocate for a better job.” ● Following the Herd Another common investor bias is following the herd. When the financial media and Main Street are bullish, many investors will happily put additional funds in stocks, regardless of how high prices soar simply because “everyone else is doing it.” However, when stocks trend lower, many refuse to invest until the market shows signs of recovery. As a result, they fail to purchase stocks when they are at their most attractive levels. ● Past Performance Bias Despite frequent warnings from investment professionals that past performance is no guarantee of future results, many investors continue to use recent past performance as a guide to equity and mutual fund purchases. ● Familiarity Sullivan recalls a middle-aged banker who put more than half of his $500,000 portfolio in bank stocks. Another prospective client who had sold his consumer-goods business to a big consumer-goods company then put almost all of his money in that one company’s stock. “Investing in what you know best can be a siren song leading investors waterwelljournal.com


astray from a prudently diversified portfolio,” Sullivan says. “That was the case with both of the investors mentioned above. One was familiar with banks; the other was familiar with consumer goods. Unwisely they both put all their eggs in a familiar basket.”

Counteracting Personal Biases Having a written plan is the key. “Create a plan and stick to it,” Sullivan says. “Hewing to a written long-term investment policy prevents you from making haphazard decisions about your portfolio during times of economic stress or euphoria. Selecting the appropriate asset allocation will help you weather turbulent markets.” Investors should invest assets they may need to withdraw from their portfolios within five years in short-term liquid investments. Combining an appropriate asset with a short-term reserve gives investors more confidence to stick to their longterm plans. If you can’t control your emotions—or don’t have the time or skill to manage your investments—consider hiring a feeonly financial adviser. “An adviser can provide moral support and coaching, which will boost your confidence in your long-term plan and also prevent you from making a bad, emotionally driven decision,” Sullivan suggests. At the end of the day we all bring our natural biases into the investment process. “Though we cannot eliminate them entirely,” Sullivan says, “we can learn to recognize them and respond in ways that help us avoid destructive and selfdefeating behavior.” WWJ

When Heart Meets Hustle, Stand Back! If you have the drive to sell and the desire to succeed, few things in this world can stand in the way of success.

was at a beautiful resort with my family a few years ago and I noticed there was a business conference going on. I saw a man walking by in a shirt emblazoned with the confab’s “No Limits” logo and we got to talking about his work. He ended up introducing me to his company’s senior vice-president of global sales and marketing before it dawned upon me: I was in my bathing suit! I started to laugh. What else could I do but carry on? I acknowledged the situation, continued our engaging conversation, and left with their business cards. Despite my embarrassment, I didn’t crumble because I have heart and hustle—two qualities that are essential for selling success. I have tremendous heart in my ability to help organizations sell more. I know that my sales experience, education, and instinct can’t be beat. If you want to sell more, you need to believe deep in your heart in the value of your offering. Perhaps the line of products and service you sell isn’t the absolute fastest, cheapest, or highest quality. However, you’ve got to truly believe that the combination of its qualities makes it the best solution or you’re done before you’ve even got started.

Hustle is what pushes you to make one more call, suggest one more potential solution, call a new customer, or check out the sales potential. Making a Plan It’s said that before you can sell something, you must first “buy” it yourself. There are many folks selling life insurance who will tell you that once they bought a million dollar policy for themselves, it was easier to sell them to their customers. The same concept applies to most products, tangible or intangible. Here’s a quick fix for the faint of heart. More than 20 years ago, when I first started selling, I embraced the advice of sales guru and motivational speaker Brian Tracy. He urged me to prepare for a sales call by looking in a mirror and reminding myself, “I am the best. I am the best. I am the very, very best.” If you do this, it will pump you up and give you heart too. I once met a man who was between jobs named Robert. Remember, job hunting is just a form of selling, and one of the toughest, too. When he heard of a job opening for a sales manager, he took the time to study and understand his potential employer’s situation, structure, and strategies. Instead of sending over a standard resume, he produced a painstakingly detailed three-page document he titled “Revenue/Profit Generator Proposal to Become Sales Manager.”

He showed me one of these documents and it was impressive. His five-year plan for the company, broken down into seven individual time frames, was a tour de force of logic and conciseness. If I needed a sales manager, I’d hire Robert on the spot. That’s what I mean when I talk about heart, and the same approach can work in just about any sales situation. Obviously, that approach won’t always be appropriate, but when it is, and when it clicks—fasten your seat belt, because the sky’s the limit.

Some Good Examples I once read about Margaret Johnson, who showed she had heart when she tried out for the Houston Texans cheerleaders at age 46 and made the first cut. Hey, she can still do the splits—and really believed she had the stuff to make the squad. As Margaret knew, no matter what your situation, if you have heart, you can accomplish amazing things. Having heart is not enough, however. You can’t just sit at home and believe you’re the best. The second ingredient, hustle, is every bit as important. It’s what pushes you to make one more call, suggest one more potential solution, call a new customer, or check out the sales potential in a different industry. Hustle is the reason I found myself talking business in a bathing suit. And don’t make excuses, ever. For example, what if your language skills aren’t terrific? Neither are Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, yet Californians later addressed him as Governor waterwelljournal.com


Schwarzenegger. Why? Because he had the heart and the hustle, and if you possess those attributes, a rough accent becomes irrelevant. Another movie star with heart and hustle is Jackie Chan. I love his movies, not only for the great choreography, but also the outtakes as the credits roll. He lets us see his mistakes, both physical and pronunciation. Despite his mishaps and mangled language, Jackie keeps filling movie theaters.

Taxi Tactics Nigel, a fan of mine, recently shared one of his methods for finding sales opportunities. When he travels, he always takes a cab. In the line at the airport, he asks if anyone wants to share the ride, since he figures that whoever climbs into the back seat with him will be a captive audience, and it’s not unusual for that person to be an executive of a potential customer. Often, before they part company, his companion will have agreed to a telephone appointment. Plus, Nigel saves on half the cab fare! What’s the worst that can happen if you have the heart and hustle, but still don’t end up with a sale? You walk away with experience, maybe a good story, and the comfort in knowing you tried your best. You will also be that much wiser when you do try again. No matter whether you sell in your business suit, or even your bathing suit, if you sell with heart and hustle, you will close more business. Happy selling! WWJ

Keeping Your House in Order Practicing good housekeeping on the job site is essential for preventing safety accidents. By Mike Price very detail matters in today’s work environment. Take a clean job site for example. It seems straightforward, but housekeeping affects much more than just slips, trips, and falls. Good housekeeping in vehicles helps during a Department of Transportation roadside inspection. A neat truck is more likely to get waved through or receive a clear inspection. Keeping a tidy vehicle cab is crucial because a bottle or can may roll out from under the seat and block the brake pedal or accelerator. In an accident, loose objects in the cab can become deadly projectiles. The same for a neat and clean job site in the event of a safety inspection,

whether it’s by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the local fire department, or other type of safety inspection. Fire, environmental, and general chemical hazards/incidents can be reduced with good housekeeping. “That first impression of being neat and clean goes a long way to influencing the outcome of the inspection,” says Jim Wright, director of health and safety for WDC Exploration & Wells in Shawnee, Kansas. Wright chairs the National Ground Water Association’s Safety Subcommittee. Housekeeping also improves work efficiency and production. Knowing where your tools and supplies are and being able to get to them quickly saves time and money. What’s more, good housekeeping can improve tool and equipment life. Taking care of equipment and keeping it clean makes it last longer and saves money. Case in point. While reaching for a box on a messy shelf, a worker might not see the hammer that gets knocked off onto their head, or that bottle of

paint thinner that falls off the shelf and spills. Reports of contractors reaching into a cluttered toolbox for penetrating oil and accidentally engaging the spray can because the lid came off are not uncommon.

Key Safety Points to Consider Joe Neri, owner/operator of All Star Drilling and Probing in Laurence Harbor, New Jersey, who sits on NGWA’s Safety Subcommittee, points out three things to consider. 1. From an environmental point of view, the importance of possible cross contamination needs to be addressed. If the job site is a mess, there is a good possibility someone could be spreading contamination from one area to another. 2. From a safety standpoint, keeping a clean job site will help prevent slips, trips, and falls. It will also help prevent workers from being put in the line of fire.

“That first impression of being neat and clean goes a long way to influencing the outcome of the inspection.” HOUSEKEEPING/from page 3 3. From an equipment and tooling perspective, they’ll always work best and last longest when clean and organized. “I have always taken a lot of pride in running a clean, organized drill and job site and stress this to my guys daily before they go out in the field,” Neri says. “You can tell a lot about someone just by the way they keep their job site organized. Be safe and organized. By keeping your site clean, this will help you to be more efficient.” Other points to consider are that housekeeping affects relationships— those between the general contractor and the client and a working relationship between a subcontractor and the general contractor. Poor housekeeping by a subcontractor can also lead the general contractor to believe the subcontractor is not taking pride in the project itself, and can even affect the insurance rates of the subcontractor as well.

Safety Products There are many safety products designed to keep job sites clean in the groundwater industry, including a fairly new technique for sediment control to meet the requirements needed for well construction. Sediment filter bags have commonly been used on small bridge construction jobs where space is not available to construct a sedimentation basin. Muddy, sediment-laden water is discharged into a sediment filter bag where the suspended sediment is contained. The sediment-free water (almost all of it) discharges through the walls of the bag and flows into the stream.

WATER WELL JOURNAL Q & A

Stewart Krause Wyo-Ben Inc. ater Well Journal regularly interviews groundwater professionals throughout the year. For this special supplement geared toward the West, we thought it would be a good idea to catch up with someone from Wyo-Ben Inc. which mines, processes, and distributes sodium bentonite products throughout the world and is headquartered in Billings, Montana. Stewart Krause has been employed by Wyo-Ben since 1978. During this time he has served in many different capacities involving the oil and gas, mining, environmental, industrial, horizontal directional drilling, and water well industries. Krause is involved in the product development and site applications of WyoBen’s groundwater and mineral products. He teaches several drilling fluid and grouting seminars each year for the groundwater industry and has been an active member of the National Ground Water Association, including serving as chair of the Manufacturers Division Board of Directors. Water Well Journal: Wyo-Ben was one of the suppliers that was part of the Nebraska Grout Study that was formed in 2001 and is still ongoing. What do you think is the biggest piece of information to come from that research so far? Stewart Krause: Nearly all of the grouts tested performed very well when placed in a saturated zone. Vadose zone grouting is where the major grout problems were noted. Thus, follow-up grout tests were specifically targeting the vadose zone.

W

Mike Price is the associate editor of Water Well Journal. In addition to his WWJ responsibilities, Price produces NGWA’s newsletters and contributes to the Association’s quarterly scientific publication. He can be reached at mprice@ngwa.org.

6/ Special Section Water Well Journal

This should point us in the direction to something greater than just a surface seal. I would guess we will see some state grouting regulations changed to include full-hole grouting or at least grouts that penetrate first water to keep grouts hydrated. WWJ: Is it safe to say the study has led to advancements in the grouting industry over the last few years? Stewart: Speaking for Wyo-Ben, we have changed some of our bentonite grout formulations and are developing cement-based grout formulations. WWJ: Have these advancements led to new products? Stewart: We will definitely be marketing some new products as the grouting regulations change. WWJ: The initial study tested three basic recipes. A total of 18 different recipes and nine new products were being tested after results of the first study were released in 2009. Do you have any news on those results? Stewart: The vadose zone testing is still being reviewed and has not been released yet. The task force is also looking to install some additional test wells with some new formulations as funds become available. WWJ: Can you tell us how you think the grouting industry has changed over the last few years with regard to more drillers entering the geothermal market? Stewart: There has definitely been a rush for more training directed specifically to address the grouting requirements for ground source heat pumps. This is driven by the ground source industry certification requirements and engineer’s specifications. New products have been brought to market specifically for geothermal applications.

Stewart Krause WWJ: Since it is a relatively new market, what type of advice can you give contractors considering entering the geothermal industry? Stewart: Start small with a few domestic installations or work under a contractor who is already in the business to make sure you understand what you are getting into. Most complaints that I hear from new entries into the industry are pricing or understanding how to bid the project. WWJ: Is there a single obstacle that stands out among the rest? Stewart: If new entries are coming from the HVAC side of the business, they have a huge learning curve on drilling in changing formations. If they come from the drilling side, bidding the job and making money seems to be the largest issue. WWJ: How important is professional development in terms of contractors using grout materials properly? Stewart: There is no substitute for training and experience when it comes to proper mixing and placement of grout. Before thinking of grouting, the hole has to be properly drilled so the grouting process truly begins with the first turn of the bit.

Mexico with the Bounds v. State of New Mexico case. How do you see this trend evolving in the next five years? Stewart: I remember sitting in some NGWA meetings about 15 years ago and the discussion was the growing interest in water law. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised we have not seen more high-profile water rights lawsuits over the last decade. Water rights will become more valuable than mineral rights over the next decade, and defining ownership of those rights will make their way to the highest courts. WWJ: The slow economy has affected everyone in the groundwater industry. What kind of advice would you give someone to survive these tough times? Stewart: Get your costs in line to survive on drilling fewer wells per year and also look to non-traditional markets to utilize equipment and people. Most old-line drilling companies geared up over the last couple of decades with more drilling equipment and people to handle the drilling boom, and now have or need to downsize their operations. WWJ: Lastly, what do you think are the critical issues facing the water well drilling industry today? Stewart: Proper use and protection of our groundwater resource. The well drilling industry will be asked to provide safe water for generations to come, but only if we do our jobs correctly today.

Graphalloy® pump bushings and case rings designed for vertical and horizontal pumps are the ideal choice for difficult applications where harsh or extreme environments may exist. Typical applications are deep well pumps for water and geothermal service, eliminating the need to pre-lubricate. Graphalloy performs exceptionally well at temperatures ranging from –215°C to 400°C and does not swell when submerged nor distort under load or when experiencing wide temperature swings. Graphalloy is self-lubricating and non-galling, key benefits in applications where maintenance operations are infrequent, difficult, or impossible. Pumps equipped with Graphalloy bushings and case rings can survive run-dry conditions and loss of suction, helping to reduce downtime and increase productivity.

SJE-Rhombus, an industry manufacturer of quality control solutions for water and wastewater applications, introduces the SJE Oil Spotter control panel for elevator sump applications. The SJE Oil Spotter system is designed to provide pump and alarm notification of potentially threatening water and oil levels in simplex pumping applications including elevator sump basins, transformer vaults, leachate well applications, garages, or any application requiring ASME A17.1 compliance. This system features a factory installed oil water switch with four probes (start level, stop level, high water level, and reference for ground) and a mechanical high oil alarm float. As water and oil enter the tank, the oil rises to create a floating layer on top of the water. The water level rises to reach the start probe, activating the pump to remove water (not the oil) from the tank. It continues pumping until the water level falls below the stop probe, deactivating the pump. If the water level continues to rise and reaches the high water probe, the red high water LED indicator illuminates and auxiliary contacts close (activating an optional Tank Alert alarm or other remote device). If the oil level rises to activate the mechanical high oil float, the red high oil LED indicator illuminates and auxiliary contacts close (activating an optional Tank Alert alarm or other remote device).

Advantages of Surge Block Method Most effective way to develop any well Produces more water, less color and turbidity Only the surge block method “back washes” the well screen, removing clay bridge, sands and silts Flexible wiper creates suction and pulls water into the screen (not available with other methods) Constructed of inert long-lasting materials Capable of lifting water over 50 feet Removable ball valve prevents water from flowing back into well and will not clog with sediments Fast, effective and saves time and money
