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.

Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies , an independent environmental research organization in Millbrook, NY, is a leader in environmental monitoring – particularly long-term monitoring that spans decades.
Steve Hamilton is a freshwater ecologist at Cary Institute and professor at Kellogg Biological Station , a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), at Michigan State University. Hamilton explains, “Environmental monitoring is how ecologists keep a finger on the planet’s rapidly-shifting pulse. By tracking ecological indicators over long timescales, we can identify patterns and better understand how ecosystems are changing. This understanding will guide us as we work to adapt to and mitigate environmental degradation.Read More
In drought-stressed areas like California where every drop in the aquifer counts, seismic noise may be the key to monitoring water. Harvard University PhD student and principal investigator Tim Clements spoke to EM about this recent work, and how it might be a game changer for water watchers across the country.
“The inspiration for this research was the historic drought in California from 2011 to 2017,” explains Clements. “This was the driest period in recorded history in the state. We started this research after California had implemented the first mandatory water restrictions in state history in 2015.”
According to Clements, the team focused their study on the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles County for several reasons.Read More
As of 2018, 75 percent of the main channel of the Mississippi River is monitored for water quality. This step forward is the result of an agreement between more than 30 mayors from cities close to the Mississippi River, the Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative . Super gauges now monitor nutrients along the river, and Scott Morlock with the US Geological Survey (USGS) spoke to EM about this project.
