If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting Dave Banks – the co-author of the seminal UK borehole design handbook ‘Waterwells & Boreholes’, a prolific scientific author, actor and musician – then now is your chance!

At the 2017 Borehole Users Conference, taking place on the 5th October at Loughborough University, Dave will discuss the importance of good borehole design, the technical and scientific methods that can be used, and the benefits that good design brings to sustainable abstraction.

He is currently Director of his own business, Holymoor Consultancy Ltd. (Chesterfield) and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow.

He is the author of two Wiley textbooks: “Water Wells and Boreholes” (with Bruce Misstear and the late Lewis Clark) and “An Introduction to Thermogeology: Ground Source Heating and Cooling”.

Dave is active at Hasland Theatre and will be directing Brecht’s Life of Galileo in January 2018. He is a songwriter and poet, having released three albums with The Sedatives and Me and Mr Jones. He plays guitar in the duo Poke O’Swedgers.
