  • Why You Should Monitor Groundwater?

    What is groundwater? Groundwater is water that is stored below the earth’s surface. When rain or other sources of water come into contact with the ground, the majority of it travels below the surface. Though much of this moisture is then absorbed by plants or returned to the atmosphere (through infiltration), some water will travel deeper beneath the surface – where it ...

  • Surface Water Monitoring - Case Study

    Safe operation of a Water Treatment Plant (WTP) requires careful monitoring of the water supply influent to the plant, as a guard for any substances entering the treatment works that could negatively impact treated water quality in the distribution system. One aspect of water quality that has recently garnered more attention from authorities and utilities is Natural Organic Matter (NOM), which ...

  • 3 Scientific Tools to Help You Better Understand Your Water Quality

    There are many ways of testing and understanding your water quality with online scientific tools and models. One such resource is the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) project run by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The project, which was founded in 1991 to develop reliable information about water sources to support decisions on water quality management ...

  • Groundwater Monitoring Case Study

    Global has been contracted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Remediation and Redevelopment Division (MDEQ RRD) to conduct quarterly sampling at a former gas station and adjacent property located near a State of Michigan owned public assess site to Torch Lake. The purpose of the sampling is to assure that there are no impacts to the surface water located downgradient of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Optimal groundwater contamination monitoring using pumping wells

    This study presents a new method for selecting monitoring wells for optimal evaluation of groundwater quality. The basic approach of this work is motivated by difficulties in interpolating groundwater quality from information collected for only few sampled wells. The well selection relies on other existing data relevant to contaminant distribution in the sampling domain, e.g. predictions of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Groundwater Monitoring of a Solid Waste Landfill in Germany

    In Germany solid waste landfills are required to monitor the ground water on and around their premises and to regularly submit reports to the responsible environmental authority. It is the duty of the landfill operator to show that there is no strong negative effect on the ground water as it passes below the landfill. To be able to measure the impact of the landfill on the ground water quality, ...

  • Research considerations for more effective groundwater monitoring

    Since numerous pathogens occur in feces, water is monitored for fecal contamination using indicator organisms rather than individual pathogens. Although this approach is supported by health effects data in recreational waters, it is questionable when used for drinking water. Most outbreaks in groundwater occur in systems that have not violated the US EPA's maximum contaminant limit (MCL) ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
