  • The first monitoring well in Engbertsdijksvenen is a reality

    On Wednesday 20 December 2017, the first monitoring well of the groundwater monitoring network Engbertsdijksvenen was realised on the parcel of landowner Wilharms in Vriezenveen. This monitoring well serves to monitor the effects of the measures required for the Nature Objectives of the Engbertsdijksveen. One of these goals is the recovery of living high moor. In addition to this monitoring well, ...

  • Optimal design of groundwater-level monitoring networks

    Groundwater monitoring plays a significant role in groundwater management. This study presents an optimization method for designing groundwater-level monitoring networks. The proposed design method was used in the Eshtehard aquifer, in central Iran. Three scenarios were considered to optimize the locations of the observation wells: (1) designing new monitoring networks, (2) redesigning ...

  • The importance of groundwater monitoring

    Groundwater monitoring is an essential element in any environmental information system. Based upon validated groundwater monitoring data, information is derived on which decisions can be made. Constant monitoring provides the necessary data input for your smart environment and is basically the basis of the decision making process concerning spatial planning and climate change adaptation. As in ...

  • Effective Groundwater Monitoring Using Dedicated Pumping Tubes

    This article describes a groundwater monitoring procedure that does not require decontamination of pumping equipment, eliminates the chance of cross contamination between wells, and uses a surface pump.  Two surface pumps are described, one for water level depths less than 25 feet and one for water level depths greater than 25 feet. Install Dedicated Pumping Tubes ...

  • Assessment of riverside groundwater flood risk induced by high river water levels using a numerical model and monitoring data

    Large barrages have been constructed on the main rivers in South Korea to store water and mitigate fluvial flooding damage. However, the increase in water levels behind the barrages can potentially lead to a rise in groundwater levels in the riversides. The purpose of this study was to describe the effect of a barrage on groundwater levels and to test the applicability of a numerical model to ...

  • Monitoring groundwater resources for Municipalities - Case Study

    Background The City of Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert in southwest United States (U.S.), approximately 100 km north of the Mexico-U.S. border. Tucson Water operates more than 215 groundwater wells, covering more than 300 square miles, providing more than 37 billion gallons (140 million m3) of potable water to its 730,000 inhabitants each year. The region receives only 12 inches of ...

  • Spatiotemporal groundwater level forecasting and monitoring using a neural network–based approach in a semi arid zone

    Forecasting the groundwater level (GWL) of an aquifer is one of the most important tasks in hydrogeology. Such forecasts prove vital to develop better exploitation strategies of water resources and to carry up–to–date groundwater monitoring. In this paper, an artificial neural network (ANN)–based approach, which was based on linear regression model, is presented to simulate and predict both ...

  • Groundwater level response to hydrogeological factors in a semi-arid basin of Beijing, China

    In this study, the mode of groundwater level fluctuations is analyzed by statistical approaches for 51 monitoring wells located in a semi-arid basin in Beijing from 1998 to 2013. Firstly, a geostatistical method was performed to characterize the spatial and temporal behaviors of data sets and analyze the responding mechanism of groundwater level to hydrologic features using the Geostatistics ...

  • Groundwater levels under climate change in the Gnangara system, Western Australia

    The Gnangara system is the main source of freshwater for Perth, Western Australia. However, aquifers in the region are under severe stress due to a drying climate, intensive pumping and changes in land use. The aim of this study is to apply the mean rainfall cumulative deviation and Mann-Kendall analyses at 77 monitoring bores to investigate the response of the water table to key recharge ...

  • Regional Ground Water Level Monitoring in Germany

    Reference Project: Regional Ground Water Level Monitoring, Germany ribeka is responsible for monitoring the ground water levels within an area of over 4.000 km2 in the western German province of North Rhine-Westphalia. Within this densely populated area that comprises many large cities (e.g. Cologne and Bonn) as well as Europe’s biggest brown coal open mining site, extensive ground water ...

  • Radon distribution in groundwater of Taiwan

    Radon levels were surveyed in 517 monitoring wells constructed in five major groundwater areas of Taiwan. The radon concentration in groundwater samples varied in a wide range from below the detection limit of 18 pCi/L up to 1,100 pCi/L. A worldwide comparison of reported groundwater radon levels was conducted. Overall radon levels in Taiwan groundwater are relatively low compared to other ...

  • Case study - Groundwater monitoring around hydraulic fracturing sites in Colorado

    Hydraulic fracturing or ‘Fracking’ has become more prevalent and controversial in the US in recent years. More than 90 percent of new wells in the US are completed using this method. While it is endorsed by some as a game-changer that promises an increase in the nation’s economy due to energy independence, job creation, and lower energy prices; others are calling for a temporary ...
