The WS 2100 Flow Meter Kit includes all the necessary instrumentation to perform a complete well drawn down test.
By combining the WS 131 Flow Meter and the Well Sounder 2010 PRO, the WS 2100 Flow Meter Kit includes all of the instrumentation needed to perform a complete well draw down test. The WS 131 comes with a variety of housing sizes each made to attach on a PVC pipe. Simply plug the WS 131 into the Well Sounder 2010 PRO and it is ready to go. Custom cables eliminate the hassles of multiconductor flow meters and supplying external power by easily connecting the WS 131 flow meter to the Well Sounder 2010 PRO. The Well Sounder's proprietary self-calibration routine makes the process quick and accurate.
With its built-in data logger, the Well Sounder records static water level and the pumped volume at a user-selectable interval between 1 second and 60 minutes for the duration of the test. Once the test in complete, the Well Sounder connects to a computer via USB. The data file can be imported into Excel and graphed or printed and attached to a report. The equipment is easily stored and transported in a hard-sided carrying case.

For the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like.
“Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.Read More
Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.Read More
Since the 1980s, scientists from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) have been sampling water from acid-impaired ponds and lakes and tracking data related to acidity. The line of inquiry began in response to concerns about acid rain, but DEC scientists now find that the long-term monitoring is not only proving the efficacy of the Clean Air Act but also improving local water quality.
Guarding the environment in Vermont
Rebecca Harvey is a VT DEC scientist, and monitoring the state's waterways for acidity and other problems falls in part to her. Dr. Harvey corresponded with EM about this work.Read More
