Definitions for "Static Water Level"
The undisturbed level of water in the well before pumping.
Static water level is the level at which water stands in a well when the water level is at equilibrium with atmospheric pressures). It is a measure of the depth from the ground surface or from a known measuring point to the water level.
The level of the surface of the water in a well or water pressure at the top of a well, when no water flows or is being pumped. For flowing wells with a positive water pressure at the top of a well, the static water elevation is determined by a stilling pipe or pressure guage. Water levels are referenced to the elevation of the top of the well or the established ground surface at the well.
