Field Parameter Measurement During Well Purging Training Courses
Measurement of field water-quality indicator parameters is a fundamental component of most conventional purging and all low-flow purging and sampling approaches to collecting ground-water samples from monitoring wells. This module explains how to correctly measure the most common water-quality indicator parameters (including pH, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen and redox potential) and physical parameters (temperature and turbidity) used in conjunction with purging wells to ensure the collection of accurate data. You will learn which parameters to measure to achieve sampling program objectives and how to identify when field data do not make sense, and what the cause(s) may be. Field videos are included in this module to explain the practices and procedures used for field parameter measurement.
