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. 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)
