Heron SKINNY DIPPER Water Level Meters

Overview
The Heron SKINNY DIPPER is A specialized unit designed for narrow tubes and piezometers. The SKINNY DIPPER will signal water with a bright LED light and solid buzzer tone, allowing the user to make water level measurements accurate to 1/100th ft or to each millimeter. When contact is made with water, the SKINNY DIPPER signals the water shorts the probe tip and body to complete a circuit. There is no on/off switch--the switch is the water.

Tape Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER uses a high-strength Polyethylene tape, the diameter of which is a narrow 1⁄4”. The flexible tape winds smoothly onto the tough Nylon reel. Inside the tape are embedded two stainless steel conductors, which carry the signal from the probe to the electronic module. The SKINNY DIPPER tape is marked to engineering scale: Feet and tenths with markings every 1/100ft.

Electronic Module Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER includes a fully potted, fully field removable electronic module. The super bright red LED and buzzer are housed inside this water-tight module. The sensitivity dial on the SKINNY DIPPER allows false signals from cascading water to be tuned out, enabling the most accurate readings possible. The electronic circuit converts the DC battery current to an alternating current; this prevents corrosion and mineral build-up on the probe. The SKINNY DIPPER works on one 9-volt battery in an easy-access battery drawer mounted on the front of the module.

Probe Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER comes with a weighted, slim line 1/4” (0.635cm) diameter probe. The narrow diameter of the probe makes the SKINNY DIPPER an ideal water level indicator for narrow tubes and direct push equipment.

Reel Specifications
The SKINNY DIPPER is a well-balanced unit. The stand-alone, sturdy steel frame is coated in Polyurethane for durability. The vinyl-coated carry handle is ergonomically designed for comfort and easier rewinding. The reel flanges and center hub are molded from high-strength Nylon turning on a stainless steel axle, allowing the smooth running of tape up and down the well or borehole. The third hand well casing hanger and tape guide are standard features on all Heron water level indicators.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.

Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger: Boost your Turbidity Monitoring

The Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger is a self-cleaning turbidity sensor capable of internally logging over 260,000 data records. The sensor enables researchers, compliance officers, and contractors to monitor turbidity in various applications, from construction and dredging sites to wastewater effluent.  Due to its narrow width, this device can be deployed in a range of areas, from small well spaces to rivers and streams. The stainless steel housing and built-in wiper allow the sensor to withstand long-term deployments and reduce the need for maintenance trips.  The logger accurately records temperature and turbidity up to a depth of 50 meters.
