Assembling Standard CMT Multilevel Systems

Table 1 shows the design of a hypothetical CMT Multilevel System. Each channel in this well can be used for both collecting a groundwater sample (with either a peristaltic pump, inertial pump or micro double valve pump) and measuring the depth to water. Each channel therefore functions both as a sampling port and an observation port.


A 12.5 inch-pounds torqued port plug is designed to hold 20 psi (50 ft.) of head differential.


Monitored Zone Channel Number Depth to Center of Port
(from ground surface)
1 1 23 ft (7.0 m)
2 2 34 ft (10.4 m)
3 3 48 ft (14.6 m)
