Ahorizontal wellpoint has been constructed to supply irrigation water to a golf course froma coastal dune sands aquifer. The sourceprovides the required quantities with relatively limited drawdown compared with what would beexpected from a conventional vertical wellpoint system. Pumping test data have been analysed using a curve fitting method based on parabolic isochrone curves. The resulting values for the aquifer characteristics fall within their anticipated range.
