"Water and Oil—They Really Should Mix" was the title of Schofield's lecture. This presentation employed a historical overview of the water well/oil drilling industries. Just as the oilfield industry that began in 1859 in Titusville, Pennsylvania, depended upon the history and technology of the water well industry for the majority of its technology, Schofield's lecture stated that the water well industry could, in turn, benefit from adopting various new techniques and practices developed and refined by the oil and gas industry. Lecture topics included, but were not limited to:

•The challenges of environmentally demanding drilling site locations
•The drilling rigs of today—and tomorrow
•Drilling fluids vs. mud
•Well completion casings, material selection, and connections
•Alternative well screen designs and completion of techniques
•Cements and grouts
•Filter pack selection and placement technologies
•Well development practices and procedures
•Coil tubing rigs and well redevelopment.
Understanding the innovations and advances from both industries helps address and meet the demands to survive and thrive economically on the leading edge in the ever-changing and complex groundwater industry.
