This course addresses the many applications and techniques for sampling and analyzing groundwater. Regulatory requirements stipulate the minimum water quality of groundwater sources. Monitoring wells are used to obtain samples of subsurface groundwater for analysis. But, how do you construct a monitoring well? And what types of measurements should be taken to ensure regulatory compliance?

In this course, you will learn about how groundwater is naturally contained within rock formations underground. You will learn about the different construction methods used for monitoring wells. Groundwater constituents, which are dissolved minerals in water, will be covered, as well as methods for measuring for each constituent. You will learn the different methods available for measuring groundwater level. The pros and cons of automated monitoring systems will be discussed relative to manual monitoring techniques. Finally, the type of data loggers commercially available will be discussed.
