The term groundwater is used to describe the water that has infiltrated the surface of the earth and formed underground lakes that are referred to as aquifers. Groundwater monitoring consists of taking water quality and water level data, which are plotted and used to monitor changes in trends over time.
The reasons for testing water quality in groundwater are numerous. Monitoring water quality and conducting tests is a good way to gather data on aquifer hydraulics. It can also be used to monitor parameters such as rhodamine, which helps to understand movement of underground water. Human activities can have an impact on groundwater quality, and conducting tests in this field can help to track these effects. Leachate from landfill and fertiliser can both find their way into groundwater. It is important to monitor...
Groundwater hydrology is an interpretive science: we can’t observe the aquifers directly so we must interpolate and extrapolate our understanding from water-level measurements taken from observation wells. Stevens has expertise for measuring both water quantity and water quality.
The pressure sensors in mining equipment must be robust, reliable and accurate. STS solutions can be found in hydraulic monitoring, pressure and temperature measurements in explosion endangered zones, and groundwater monitoring.

Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life
It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.
Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.
Collect the most accurate short- and long-term water level and water quality data for your project using In-Situ equipment. We design and manufacture every instrument to perform under harsh conditions for years.
InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking underground storage tanks and produced water evaporation ponds. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and then presented to the InfraCal Analyzer for measurement....
Many fresh water sources have been degraded to toxic levels by the inclusion of industrial, agricultural, and human waste products that have been discharged into the closest body of water, accidentally or deliberately for many years.
There are a lot of waterproofing systems inside a building. Their only purpose is to tight
Waterproofing systems are the major component to protect a building and the people inside against water and moisture. To be able to protect, they have to tight for the whole lifespan of the building. Unfortuneately there are a lot of reasons, why waterproofing systems can fail. Eventually, every waterproofing system starts leaking.
effective maintenance needs reliable information
To do maintenance on waterproofing systems,...
