  • Local groundwater monitoring network solution

    The NEW RRL Gold Remote Radio Link System offers a very simple and inexpensive method of local telemetry. The wireless system is designed to collect water level data, logged by the Levelogger Series of dataloggers, and send it via short-distance radio to your computer – no need to travel to each site. The RRL Gold is ...

  • Announcing the Solinst Symposium on groundwater monitoring for the 21st century

    Design is a traditional task common to all engineering fields although most engineers do not have to deal with the heterogeneous properties of materials as is the case in site remediation, mining, geotechnical engineering, etc. A structural engineer can specify properties of steel or reinforced concrete and an electronics engineer can specify the physical properties of transistors, capacitors, ...

  • Groundwater monitoring: what’s winter field work like?

    Although the stimulation phase of the Newberry EGS Demonstration has come to a close, field work continues throughout the winter months on the volcano (brrr!). We’re currently collecting and analyzing groundwater samples in order to monitor any changes in the local groundwater system. This work is intended to make sure thestimulation hasn’t affected the quality of the groundwater high ...

  • Groundwater Atlas for pesticides

    The recently published Groundwater Atlas for pesticides provides an overview of where and when pesticides have been found in groundwater. The results can be used to improve water quality in the Netherlands. The data will be used by the Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (Ctgb) to monitor groundwater quality. The Groundwater Atlas was developed between 2015 and ...

  • Contaminants in US groundwater

    According to a new study by the USGS, more than 20% of untreated water samples from 932 public wells across the US contained at least one contaminant at levels of potential health concern. About one-third of the US population receive their drinking water from such a system. The USGS study (Contaminants in Groundwater used for ...


  • A Hydrogen Recirculation System For The Treatment Of Tce-Impacted Groundwater

    ABSTRACT: To speed the rate of reductive dechlorination of trichloroethylene (TCE)-impacted groundwater at the Old Jet Engine Test Site (OJETS), Offutt AFB, Nebraska, an in situ pilot-scale dissolved hydrogen addition system was installed. The test area consisted of an injection well, a recovery well, and five monitoring wells within an 8.5 m x 4.3 m (28 ft x 14 ft) test plot. Groundwater was ...


  • MicroLAN installs BACTcontrol to monitor groundwater recharge for French golf course

    MicroLAN, has installed an online BACTcontrol system at the effluent of the waste water treatment plant Agon-Coutainville, France. The wwtp-effluent is used for groundwater recharge for a nearby golf course on the Normandy coast. The BACTcontrol system has been installed as part of a EU-funded demonstration project for an advanced monitoring of the quantity and quality of the groundwater at the ...

  • High-resolution groundwater profiling and monitoring for cost-effective, accurate, and detailed results

    Understanding contaminant migration pathways, concentration gradients, and monitoring these over time, is key to a successful contaminated site cleanup. To achieve this, high-resolution groundwater profiling and monitoring is essential. This workshop will present tools that can be used to gain the detailed data required, and how their principles and operation allow this in an accurate and ...

  • Groundwater pollution in Europe: an overview

    An overview of groundwater contaminants in Europe is provided by a recent study, which calls for more integrated monitoring using a range of indicators. Groundwater contamination presents serious health and environmental concerns. A number of Directives, including the Water Framework, Groundwater, Nitrates, Industrial Emissions and Landfill Directives, together aim to protect groundwater from ...

  • NGWA efforts help achieve $2.6 million for National Groundwater Monitoring Network

    Within hours of a government shutdown, Congress last week passed $1.1 trillion in spending that contains $2.6 million for the implementation of the National Ground-Water Monitoring Network, a program of which the National Ground Water Association is a strong advocate. On December 16 President Obama signed the bill funding the federal government through fiscal year 2015. The money allows the U.S. ...

  • Groundwater evaluation platform

    SuperGeo Technologies has developed a data platform for groundwater recharge areas in order to evaluate the recharge potential. The platform is able to assist researchers in delimiting groundwater recharge areas and also in determining parameters such as recharge rate, pumping rate, flow rate and recharge potential. Water resource protection is one of the most important policies in Taiwan. ...

  • Coordinated groundwater recharge needed

    The massive rains over California last month are not just a blessing but also a curse: a curse because the intensity of rain causes serious problems with flooding, erosion and landslides. Every watershed in California should therefore have a coordinated program to intentionally capture flood flows and recharge groundwater aquifers. Extreme weather is one reason so much reservoir storage has been ...


  • Pesticide pollution slow to reach groundwater

    Underground water aquifers are a significant source of drinking water. In a recent study, French researchers found that pesticides applied to crops can take many years to sink down through the ground and reach groundwater. This means that they may still be entering aquifers, even after agricultural application has stopped. Groundwater is found underground in absorbent layers of rock. ...

  • Pesticides persist in groundwater, say SSSA

    Numerous studies over the past four decades have established that pesticides, which are typically applied at the land surface, can move downward through the unsaturated zone to reach the water table at detectable concentrations. The downward movement of pesticide degradation products, formed in situ, can also contribute to the contamination of ground water. Once in ground water, pesticides and ...

  • Solinst Canada Announces 2011 Symposium on Enhanced Monitoring and Remedial Methods for Contaminated Groundwater

    Solinst Canada Ltd., manufacturer of high quality groundwater and surface water monitoring instrumentation, is proud to announce the 2011 Symposium on Enhanced Monitoring and Remedial Methods for Contaminated Groundwater. Following the success of their 2009 and 2010 Conferences, this is the third Symposium to be held at their office, located in Georgetown, Ontario Canada. The 2011 Symposium ...

  • Call for abstracts for NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater

    The call for abstracts is now open for the NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater that is taking place in March 2017. Abstracts are being sought for the NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater in the following two tracks and are due October 31, 2016. Track 1 — Applications of Hydrogeophysics to Groundwater Characterization, ...

  • Dissolved Methane Found in Some New York Groundwater

    A recent study that looked at groundwater samples from more than 200 wells across New York State found levels of naturally-occurring methane high enough to warrant monitoring or other actions in nine percent of the water samples tested, according to U.S. Geological Survey research. While 91 percent of samples tested found no dissolved methane, or levels below the threshold that would require ...

  • Radioactive material found in groundwater below nuke plant

    An apparent overflow at a nuclear power plant north of New York City spilled highly radioactive water into an underground monitoring well, but nuclear regulators said the public isn't at risk. Officials at the Indian Point Energy Center in Buchanan, 40 miles north of Manhattan, reported on Friday that water contaminated by tritium leaked into ...
