Many people ask: “Are Water Level Meters still required on projects where data loggers are being deployed?” “If a constant and stable water level value is being provided why would I need a manual water level measurement?” Due diligence requirements on many projects may require a secondary verification of the data.  If relying solely on submersible […]
