Most commonly, we install monitoring wells within boreholes of varying internal diameters to allow for gas and groundwater monitoring. Other techniques which may be employed, depending on the geotechnical or environmental parameters to be investigated, include:
- Vibrating wire, pneumatic or standpipe piezometers
- Magnetic extensometers
- Continuous water quality monitors
- Continuous gas monitors
Depending on the project requirements and data to be collected, collation of data may be spot readings or contained within data loggers for direct or remote download.
Where samples of groundwater are required for laboratory testing, this will be undertaken in accordance with best practice guidance via a number of techniques, with low flow and water quality readings our method of choice.
