Why Buy From Fondriest?


The Geotech Water Level Meters are portable instruments built to accurately measure water levels in deep monitoring wells and bore holes. The manual well tape detects water levels with a 5/8" O.D. stainless steel weighted probe attached to a tape marked to 1/100th of a foot. The tape is mounted on a heavy-duty steel and aluminum reel with optional electric rewind.

The well tape relies on fluid conductivity to determine the presence of water. An audible signal and visible LED light activate when the probe contacts water. This water level meter incorporates a sensitivity adjustment to prevent false triggering.

The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

BOB and MARI Will Monitor Water Chemistry in the San Francisco Bay

Scientists have had nagging questions about how ocean acidification might be affecting the waters of the San Francisco Bay. But if you can't trust BOB and MARI with your research questions, who can you trust? That's BOB, the Bay Ocean Buoy and MARI, BOB's companion mooring for Marine Acidification Research Inquiry, of course. BOB and MARI are a bright yellow, five-foot tall buoy and its companion mooring, respectively. They are anchored near the Estuary and Ocean Science (EOS) Center of San Francisco State University (SFSU). SFSU researchers are collaborating with scientists from the University of California, Davis and other funders and partner organizations on the first long-term project to monitor carbon dioxide and ocean acidity in the San Francisco Bay.
