Diver Level Loggers Used for Groundwater Monitoring

Feb 16, 2017

A number of Eijkelkamp Diver water level loggers have been used in a ground water monitoring application in Romania. For this project, research is conducted into the feasibility of underground storage for water during periods of severe drought or heavy rainfall.

Water supports organisations in the Dutch water sector with international ambitions have been involved in innovative, international projects, such as the project in Romania in which the so-called MARS technique is applied. MARS stands for Management of Aquifer Recharge and Storage. In this increasingly applied technique, the available storage options for water in the soil are used to their full potential. Due to the geological and climatic characteristics, Romania is the perfect place for this type of water storage.

The MARS project aims to reduce the risks and dangers of drought and flood, and to contribute to a more efficient water management and water delivery method in Romania. Due to the changing climate, the worldwide demand for expertise in the field of water and water management is increasing. Due to its age-long experience with these issues, the Netherlands has built up an incredible reputation, resulting in projects such as the Romanian MARS project.

Diver level logger products are able to accurately measure and monitor the groundwater levels with the option of transferring data via GPRS, if required. Cost-effective Divers feature ceramic pressure sensors for long-term use of monitoring water levels and temperature in harsh environments. Bell Flow Systems supply a selection of level loggers, view their website for more information.
