Low Pressure Pneumatic Packers
These simple inexpensive packers inflate with a hand pump and are available in 1.8" and 3.9" (46 mm and 99 mm) diameters. Primarily for short term use in 2" and 4" (51 mm and 102 mm) monitoring wells, they can also be used in smooth boreholes and wells with 1.9 – 5" (48 – 127 mm) inside diameters. Typical inflation pressures for the 1.8" (46 mm) packers are from 20 – 40 psi (140 – 275 kPa) above hydrostatic pressure, and from 20 – 30 psi (140 – 205 kPa) for the 3.9" (99 mm) packers.

The Packers utilize a gland of black carbon reinforced rubber (BCR) on a Sch 80 PVC body. They are lowered on a support cable or a rigid PVC drop pipe. If a rigid drop tube is not required for your application, it is recommended to attach a safety line to the eyebolt provided. The Solinst Model 103 Tag Line provides a convenient, graduated support cable that can be used for this purpose, as well as for measuring placement depth. The inflation line is standard LDPE tubing and connects to the packers using a simple push fitting.

Single or Straddle Packers
Solinst packers are ideal for use with Solinst Bladder Pumps or Double Valve Pumps, which can be easily attached above the packers. The water inlet can be below a single packer, or through perforated pipe fitted between straddle packers. For hydraulic conductivity testing, Solinst Leveloggers can also be suspended, either below or between packers, from the eyebolt on the bottom of the packer.

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.

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.
