5 Ways to Improve Groundwater Sampling and Testing at Fracking Sites

Originally providing instrumentation for in-situ uranium mining, In-Situ®Inc. understands groundwater—-from groundwater sampling to aquifer testing.  If you are looking for proven methods and reliable equipment to meet regulations for hydraulic fracturing we recommend partnering with a company, like In-Situ®Inc. that’s been working with mining professionals since 1976.  In-Situ has shared with us 5 ways to improve groundwater sampling and testing at fracking sites.

1.    Avoid Repeat Sampling Events

Meet regulatory requirements for sampling by using the new smarTROLLTMLow-Flow Sampling System. The smarTROLL Multiparameter Handheld measures up to 14 parameters and wirelessly transmits data to your iPhone®. The iSitu® App:

  • Guides you through sampling setup, calibrations, and data collection
  • Stores details of purge conditions including flow rate and field parameter stabilization to demonstrate representativeness of samples
  • Logs data to your smartphone—-export to Excel
  • Generates digital calibration and sample reports—-no more transcription errors

2.    Measure Hydrologic Properties, Economically

Need to determine depth to water, hydraulic gradient, hydraulic conductivity, or potentiometric surface? In-Situ Inc.’s Rugged Water Level Tapes and Rugged TROLL Data Loggers perform reliably under tough field conditions.

3.    Streamline Aquifer Characterization Tests

In-Situ Inc. offers water level data loggers for slug tests and pumping tests. Need to monitor an entire well field? The Virtual HERMIT®Aquifer Testing Kit allows you to simultaneously configure, start, step, and stop up to 15 Level TROLL® 700 Data Loggers.

4.    Monitor Methane and Fracking Fluid Surrogates in Real Time

By establishing pollutant-surrogate relationships, it’s possible to monitor methane and fracking fluid breakthroughs. You can set up real-time water quality monitoring networks and receive alarm notifications. Read a white paper and learn how surrogate monitoring might work for you.

5.    Call In-Situ Rentals

Need equipment for short-term projects? In-Situ Rentals delivers factory-maintained and calibrated equipment. Our knowledgeable team offers free consultations to ensure that you receive the right equipment for your project.
