When it comes to groundwater monitoring, testing the water often requires the creation of a borehole at the test site to reach the water below.
Level monitoring is a routine task carried out for a variety of applications including groundwater, surface water or stormwater profiling. Installing Level Loggers is a convenient way of maximising important data collection and reducing the costs and inconvenience of mobilising to site to take manual measurements.(more…)
When we think of floods, we typically think of overflowing rivers and rising sea levels. These types of floods are common, but only for people who naturally live close to a river or the sea. Those that live in more urban areas, such as cities, typically don’t consider flooding as a problem. Yet one type of flooding can actually affect those in more built-up areas far worse – surface water flooding.
Brexit is on the lips of everyone right now and the discussions of how it is going to affect the country in numerous ways do not seem to be stopping anytime soon. Due to its vast implications, it has the potential to impact a variety of industries across the UK, including our very own water industry. So how might Brexit affect it?
Statistics published this month have revealed that nine of the twenty-one water companies based in England and Wales have received a significantly high number of customer complaints this year.
Of the nine water companies, the three that received the largest number of complaints were Bristol Water, Surrey-based SES water and Southern Water.
Monitoring water levels can have numerous environmental benefits and is a popular measurement for a number of different industries and organisations. Below we will discuss some of the common applications water level monitoring devices, as well as some of the valuable insights that recording this can reveal. (more…)
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 reaches and saturates a rock level. This level is called the water table. Once it reaches this level, the water will slowly flow until it reaches a point of dispersal, such as the sea or a river.
5 Common questions about fluoride in water
Fluoride in water can be both naturally occurring, or artificially added. In the latter case, this is usually with the objective of aiding oral hygiene in populated areas. Because of its controlled addition in many water systems around the world, it has become associated with a number of different controversies, myths and confusion.
Whether you are interested in monitoring fluoride in water, or simply want to know more about how the ionic compound affects those who consume it, we have included answers to some of the most commonly asked questions below.
