Groundwater Sampling Methodology & Equipment
When faced with differing hydrogeology, borehole and well constructions, what options do you have? Does the methodology you use produce "representative" water samples? Including low flow and no-purge groundwater sampling methods. Due to the overwhelming response, the training on 12th April is now fully booked and a second offering has been opened up on 13th April. If you weren't able to secure a seat in the first session, now is your chance! This course is limited to 15 delegates, so be sure to secure your place as soon as possible.
The full day training seminar is delivered at a central UK venue and will provide delegates with up to date knowledge including:
NEW FOR 2017
We have introduced two workshop sessions to allow delegates to think through core technical sampling issues and to share experience in the room.
We have added a new presentation to include information related to laboratories, sample preservation and quality control checks.
This is in addition to our usual core content:
Why screen length is important when selecting sampling methods
How flow within a borehole influences sample quality
An overview and comparison of the 3 main groundwater sampling methods i.e.
Well Volume Purge (3 or more well volumes)
Low Flow (or micro-purge) – including demonstration
Passive (or zero-purge) – including demonstration
Explanation of "flow-weighted average" and "representative"
Current UK guidance e.g. Environment Agency, BS ISO 5667-11:2009 (Groundwater sampling) and BS ISO 10175:2011 (Contaminated Land investigation)
Interpretation of water quality from long screened wells
R&D insights based on research at the University of Birmingham by Dr. Lindsay McMillan
Demonstrations and hands-on opportunities with groundwater monitoring equipment
Indoor and outdoor demonstrations (outdoor includes use of equipment in on-site 60m deep water well)
Equipment used and on display during the 1 day course includes:
Dip meters and interface meters
Low Flow Equipment
Water quality equipment / flow cells
Passive diffusion bag (Equilibrator)
