Geotech Acquires
AquaVISION Environmental and the Colloidal Borescope

Geotech builds the AquaVISION Colloidal Borescope and has had exclusive distribution since 2001. The Colloidal Borescope was developed by a team of research scientists working at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the 1990's. They were working to find a cost effective way to accurately determine groundwater velocity and direction using existing monitoring wells. Eventually this new technology was transfered to AquaVISION, founded by many of the original research scientists. With full ownership Geotech can continue the development of this technology. Read the press release here.

The AquaVISION Colloidal Borescope System is a state-of-the-art proprietary hardware/software system capable of measuring groundwater velocity, direction and particle size – all in real-time. Utilizing existing monitoring wells with a 2" or larger well diameter for assessment, the AquaVISION Colloidal Borescope measurement technique avoids the cost of additional wells and piezometers. While current downhole technologies only allow for a few flow measurements per day, the AquaVISION Colloidal Borescope System yields thousands of data points per minute, providing hours of statistically assured data with little or no special training.

This is today's tool for:

  • Assessing groundwater capture zones
  • Planning locations for monitoring and extraction wells
  • Accurately calibrating groundwater models
  • Tidal influences
  • Industrial hydrology
  • Evidence gathering for groundwater contamination litigation
  • Evaluating "cross-hole" hydraulic connections

Standard unit includes composite video underwater camera cable on hand reel (available 100-200', 200' standard) with carrying case and PC video card. The camera control unit incorporates camera and lighting supplies, plus digital compass serial data converter which enables operation utilizing a common USB port.
