The Solinst RRL Gold Radio Telemetry System offers a very simple and inexpensive method of local telemetry. The wireless system is designed to collect real-time water level data, logged by up to four Solinst Leveloggers and send it via shortdistance radio to your computer. The RRL Gold is excellent for small, closed loop networks, such as mine… 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 »
