Details

The Solinst Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometer uses a high quality stainless steel piezometer tip, 3/4" NPT pipe for drive extensions and LDPE or Teflon sample tubing, if desired. Combine these with an inexpensive Slide Hammer and you have a complete system.

The Solinst Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometer has a stainless steel, 50 mesh cylindrical filter-screen, within a 3/4" (20 mm) stainless steel drive-point body, screen support and a barbed fitting for attachment of sample tubing. Optional heavy-duty extension couplings are also available to create a strengthened and more rugged piezometer.

The inner barbed fitting allows connection of 5/8" OD x 1/2" ID (16 mm x 12 mm) LDPE or Teflon sample tubing. This prevents sample water from contacting the steel extension rods, and maintains high sample integrity, even when inexpensive carbon steel extensions are used.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is a barb?
The tubing barb connects 5/8" OD x 1/2" ID (16 mm x 12 mm) LDPE or Teflon sample tubing to the piezometer. This barbed fitting prevents sample water from coming in contact with the extension rods in order to maintain sample integrity. Piezometers without a tubing barb such as the 615N and 615NS are designed for use with water level meters.
What is the diameter of the piezometer?
All Solinst 615 Drive-point Piezometers are 3/4" in diameter with a 1" diameter tip. The shielded version includes an replaceable 1.5" diameter shield.
Is the Solinst piezometer reusable?
While the 615 Drive-Point Piezometers are commonly installed as permanent well points, they are reusable. However, if a shielded version (615S or 615SN) is used, the shield portion is single-use only and replacements are available.
What is the length of the piezometer? Is there a maximum depth restriction?
Piezometers are not suitable for all soil types, so the depth limitation will vary. The maximum depth penetration of the 615 piezometer will depend on the soil conditions, shield use and drive method used (slide hammer or drill). The piezometer itself is 6 inches long.

New map shows significant groundwater depletion in Central California

Groundwater level data collected by a Central California county shows significant drops during the past 12 years, according to a San Luis Obispo Tribune article. Data shows that groundwater has dropped by a minimum of 70 feet from 1997 to 2009 in the Paso Robles area of Central California. In the past four years the areas of most significant decline have expanded north and south. Drought and agricultural withdrawals are the likely culprits for the groundwater decline. Some advocates are calling for more responsible water use by vineyards in the area, while farmers note that the recent drought did not help the situation.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Heron dipper-Tough Is Ready For Harsh Deployments

For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.
