Bladder-Pumps-Used-at-Sensitive-Sites

Bladder Pumps Exceed Sampling Criteria

A nuclear power facility in England has an extensive groundwater monitoring well network that requires regular sampling. Golder Associates, the project team who developed the network, wished to update their sampling equipment and protocols to improve efficiency, while maintaining accuracy and high safety standards. A set of objectives was defined to help determine the ideal […]

CMT Used to Measure Mass Flux at a Complex Site

In a town in the Piedmont physiographic province, in the mid Atlantic, a proposed water supply well was contaminated with methyl tert butyl ether (MTBE). The well is located down gradient of several gas service stations with multiple known sources of MTBE. As such, a remedial effort was required by Virginia Department of Environmental Quality […]

Levelogger Edge and Barologger Edge Installed in Well using Direct Read Cables to Surface

Automatic or Manual Barometric Compensation of Your Levelogger Data

Automatic Barometric Compensation Submersed Leveloggers measure total or absolute pressure (water column equivalent + barometric pressure). In order to accurately determine the true changes in water level only, barometric pressure fluctuations must be taken into account. The simplest method to accomplish this is by the use of a Barologger suspended above high water level in one well […]
