Low Flow Sampling

Low flow purging and sampling involves extracting groundwater at rates comparable to ambient groundwater flow (typically less than 500 ml/min), so that the drawdown of the water level is minimized, and the mixing of stagnant water with water from the screened intake area in a well is reduced. Solinst Bladder Pumps are able to provide flow rates… Continue Reading »

Use A CMT At A LUST Site

Solinst CMT® Multilevel Systems provide a cost effective solution for identifying and monitoring leaking underground storage tank (LUST) sites. They monitor multiple depth-discrete zones in a single borehole, providing complete data sets that quickly identify sites that pose a threat to down-gradient receptors, and those that can be closed with no further action. With strong political… Continue Reading »

Levelogger Measures Greenland Ice Sheet Melt Water

The Greenland Ice Sheet covers 80% of the Island of Greenland – it is the largest ice mass in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore, it should be no surprise that it is suspected to be a key contributor to current and future global sea level rise, particularly as the earth’s temperature continues to increase. Satellite evidence… Continue Reading »

Remediation Of A Former Gas Station Site – Within 6 Months!

Vertex Environmental Inc., located in Cambridge, Ontario, specializes in the in-situ remediation of contaminated groundwater. In 2007 they were contracted to clean up a former gas station site in Guelph, Ontario. The contaminant plume containing gasoline and diesel occurs in unconsolidated silty sand to a depth of approximately 3 m (10 ft). The initial plume… Continue Reading »
