Groundwater Level & Flow

A basic measurement in groundwater studies is that of water levels in wells. Water level measurements help determine flow directions, identify changes in gradients and seasonal fluctuations. They are also used during aquifer testing, and measurements related to groundwater sampling.

The measurement of the groundwater level in a well is often conducted in conjunction with groundwater sampling to determine the “free” water surface. Groundwater level and well depth measurements are needed to determine the volume of water to be purged or in monitoring drawdown in the well casing for low flow sampling.

Geotech Colloidal Borescope Geotech Colloidal Borescope

Colloidal borescope systems provide a direct means to accurately determine groundwater velocity, flow direction and particle sizes at depth-specific intervals. The colloidal borescope yields thousands of data points per minute for hours of statistically assured data. The borescope measurements use existing monitoring wells for assessment and thus avoids the cost of additional wells and piezometers.

Geotech Water Level Meters Geotech ET Water Level Meter

Geotech designs and builds electronic water level meters – This type of instrument consists of a spool of dual conductor wire attached to a coated steel measurement tape, a sensor probe attached at the end, and indicator electronics. When the probe comes in contact with groundwater the circuit is closed and a light and audible buzzer attached to the spool will signal contact. The meter uses a 9 volt battery as the power source. Accurate measurements can be made to 3mm (1/100 of a foot).

Geotech Interface Probes & Meters ORS-Style Interface Probe

Oil-water interface probes monitor wells for the presence of separate phase product prior to purging.

An interface probe is an electronic probe designed to detect the electrical conductivities of different fluids to determine the depths to LNAPL/water interfaces. This data is used for site characterization studies to determine remediation strategies and monitor current remediation efforts.

Eno Scientific Well Sounder 2010 Pro

Eno Scientific Well Sounder 2010 Pro

The Eno Scientific Well Sounder 2010 Pro represents an advanced portable sonic water level meter, leveraging sound waves for the precise measurement of static water levels in wells, piezometers, and boreholes. It includes an internal data logger with configurable manual or automatic logging at specified time intervals. Notably, the Well Sounder Pro is equipped to intelligently handle known well defects by offering the option to disregard interferences. The operational process involves placing the sensor into the well vent opening, yielding rapid and accurate display of static water depths. Additional technical features include automatic temperature compensation, the computation of drawdown and recovery rates, immediate data capture, a capacious 2 GB non-volatile memory with time and date stamps, a power-saving mode, and the availability of remote communications capabilities.

Water Level Logging AquiStar PT2X

Designed for extended monitoring durations, these instruments offer the capability to collect water levels at user-defined intervals, eliminating the need for manual measurements. Their compact size facilitates measurement in wells or piezometers characterized by small diameters, irregularities, angles, or the presence of pumps and equipment. Equipped with a data logger, these instruments can operate unattended for prolonged periods, with the flexibility to download data to a portable field computer when required.

Water Flow Measurement Meters Global Water Flow Meter

Flow measurement is the quantification of bulk fluid movement. Flow can be measured in a variety of ways.
