M&A designs systems for measuring and recording water levels, barometric pressure, flow rates, injection rates, and water-quality parameters in groundwater, as well as for measuring and recording various environmental indicators at the surface and in the vadose zone. We collect and store sensor data using powerful, reliable dataloggers, transferring information into useful tabular and graphical formats. Data are available to clients on demand or at scheduled intervals via telemetry and manual downloads. We can also host web-based, user- friendly data portals so facility operators and managers can access real-time field data. When necessary, we follow up with periodic digital submittals, hardcopy reports, and data interpretation.
Our HydroGeoMetrics Team can...
- Design and implement vadose zone and groundwater monitoring systems
- Collect, validate, and interpret monitoring data
- Calibrate and maintain equipment
- Integrate databases and data-access portals
- Generate data tabulations and real-time and/or historical plots using telemetry and web-based interfaces
- Develop custom reporting and visualization tools for operators, management, regulators, and the public
- Develop training tools and short courses
Surface water / groundwater monitoring. M&A designs and equips monitoring networks to track water levels and assess the interactions between surface water and aquifer systems. We can also monitor the status of riparian flows and ecosystems through stream gauging, automated digital photography, and satellite imagery analysis.
Wellfield monitoring. Our systems for monitoring water levels, pumping rates, and water quality provide important data for wellfield operators. These data can be used to increase wellfield efficiency, identify maintenance issues, and manage water quality.
Tailings impoundments: We design and install instrument stations within active tailing impoundments. These stations include sensors for monitoring and storing many types of data: water content and pressure, vertical flux of water, temperature, oxygen concentration, tailings level, and other parameters. They also feature telemetry equipment for remote data collection and downloading.
