Planting 51 Trees Speeds Up Toluene Cleanup Efforts

High-Res Groundwater Monitoring Tracks its Success Over 40 years ago, a former industrial site in the City of Guelph, Ontario, was contaminated by toluene; the chemical plume has since leached into the underlying fractured bedrock aquifer. Today, the site is home to a unique research project headed by the University of Guelph Morwick G360 Groundwater… Continue Reading »

Extensive Groundwater Monitoring Program At Refinery In Australia

HydroTerra, exclusive distributor of Solinst products in Australia, was recently given the task of providing three CMT Multilevel Systems to an alumina refinery in Queensland, Australia. The groundwater monitoring program at the refinery includes monitoring one 7-channel and two 3-channel CMT Systems, and also biannually sampling 90 groundwater monitoring wells located in and around the… Continue Reading »

Can Multilevel Groundwater Monitoring Really Be Inexpensive And Simple?

The answer is yes – especially if you use a Solinst CMT Multilevel Groundwater Monitoring System. CMT Systems are low cost, quickly installed, and are easily customized to suit your multilevel groundwater and soil gas monitoring needs. What is CMT? CMT stands for Continuous Multichannel Tubing. CMT is continuously extruded medium-density polyethylene (MDPE) tubing that… Continue Reading »

High-Resolution Site Characterization With Multilevel Systems

Within the last few years, the U.S. EPA added a new focus area on high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) to their Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website. The U.S. EPA’s definition of HRSC is: “High-resolution site characterization (HRSC) strategies and techniques use scale-appropriate measurement and sample density to define contaminant distributions, and the physical context in… Continue Reading »

High Resolution Multi-level Monitoring For Bedrock Aquifers

Beth Parker provided attendees with a glimpse of the extensive research she has been spearheading for the past 20 years. Her work is focused on developing the “Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) Field Approach for Investigating Contaminated Sites in Fractured Sedimentary Rock”. Understanding how groundwater flows and chemicals migrate in these networks requires a unique approach… Continue Reading »

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… Continue Reading »
