Water Quality Monitoring for the Groundwater Monitoring Industry

by AQUAREAD Limited     based in Broadstairs, UNITED KINGDOM

There are many reasons why you might want to conduct testing or water quality monitoring of groundwater. For example, you might wish to undertake groundwater modelling for a particular area to understand aquifer hydraulics. Parameters such as rhodamine are used to understand the movement of water underground. Groundwater testing would also be used to examine the effects, if any, of human activities. Leachate from landfill can find its way into groundwater, as can fertilisers from agriculture. Monitoring groundwater quality can identify the existence of a pollutant in order to mitigate any possible harmful effects.

Continuous Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters

by Hanna Instruments     based in Woonsocket, RHODE ISLAND (USA)

Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but the largest source is from agricultural fertilizer runoff . Other sources include wastewater treatment discharge, septic systems, and from pet waste. Nitrate is highly soluble in water and therefore readily leaches into water sources, whereas other human associated pollutants, such as phosphates and ammonia, are not transported as easily. This ability to be quickly transported into ground and natural waters such as drinking water wells, aquifers, reservoirs, lakes, and streams, coupled with its health and environmental implications make nitrate pollution and monitoring of major concern.

Groundwater Monitoring for Water Resource Management

by HERON Instruments Inc.     based in Dundas, ONTARIO (CANADA)

One of the greatest problems facing the planet is the management, conservation and equitable distribution of fresh water supplies. The fresh water sources may be lakes, rivers or ground water aquifers, most of which are now under stress.
