Waterloo Emitter Spatial Distribution and Radius of Influence - Video
Waterloo Emitters can be installed in a series of wells to ensure full coverage of a contaminant plume. Let's take a closer look at the ideal spacing between Emitters. To ensure full plume coverage, the Emitters should be evenly spaced based on their radius of influence. Emitters installed in 4' or 6' wells have a radius of influence of 5 feet, so the maximum space between Emitters would be 10 feet. Emitters installed in 2' wells have a 2-foot radius; therefore, they should be spaced no more than 4 feet apart. Emitter spacing should also take into account subsurface geology, and groundwater flow. As oxygen gas is applied to the system, it diffuses out across the Emitter tubing, extending across the entire width of the plume.
