The groundwater monitoring is used to evaluate the local quality and quantity of the groundwater. These information are required to obtain important insights in the hydrochemical processes in the aquifer, as well as the origin and residence time of groundwater.
The Grundfos MP 1 submersible pump set with a connected, closed flow cell enables observations of the physicochemical parameters with digital IDS sensors (temperature, pH, electrical conductivity, redox potential, dissolved oxygen), without air contact. For continuous measurements, a basic set of loggers and sensors for measuring temperature, water level, oxygen and electrical conductivity is available.
