Many people ask “Why do I need to compensate my data?” When using pressure transducers that measure absolute pressure, barometric pressure is a component of that measurement. Barometric pressure is not a constant and must be subtracted from the pressure recorded to realize the actual water level. Barometric pressure is pressure exerted by the atmosphere […]
A pumping test is an investigation periodically performed on production or dewatering wells, which can be used to determine a variety of information. To obtain permeability values of an aquifer To investigate water quality on contaminated sites as part of a remediation project To assess the performance of new supply wells To assess if water […]
When performing a pump test, the easiest and quickest way to determine whether you have pumped to the desired depth is by employing a Heron Instruments Water Level Meter in drawDown mode. In static mode, the Heron Instruments Water Level Meters indicate the presence of water by sounding a buzzer and turning on a red […]
How do I determine the correct Heron Instruments dipperLog needed for a project? Should it be based on the cable length, the well depth, or some other factor? dipperLog pressure transducers are available is a variety of pressures ranges: dipperLog NANO B 10m/30ft dipperLog NANO C 30m/100ft dipperLog NANO D 60m/200ft dipperLog NANO E 120m/400ft […]
One of the most handy features of all Heron water level meters is the drawDown feature! As explained in the following video, the drawDown feature allows users to effectively measure static as well as falling head levels. Check out more of these helpful videos are on our YouTube channel!
