Low-Flow Groundwater Sampling Practices and Equipment Options
November 17, 2021
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
In this webinar, David Kaminski will present the latest information on well purging protocols, and discuss low-flow sampling pump options, including the newest pumping equipment available for low-flow sampling.
David will describe traditional well purging practices and how these have evolved into today's practice of low-flow purging and sampling. Information about controlling sample turbidity, the correlation of drawdown and indicator parameter stabilization, and guidelines for proper application of low-flow sampling will be covered.
PRESENTATION WILL INCLUDE:
- Traditional well purging practices
- Effects of purging on sample chemistry
- What is low-flow purging and sampling?
- Advantages of low-flow purging and sampling
- What do low-flow samples represent?
- Low-flow application guidelines
- Purging and sampling flow rates
- Water level drawdown recommendations
- Indicator parameter stabilization criteria
- Pump placement and well screen length
- Low-flow sampling pump options
The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A session to answer your questions about Low-Flow Groundwater Sampling, the latest research,equipment options and more.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- Facility Environmental Managers
- Environmental Specialists
- Plant Utility Workers
- Engineering Firms
- Sampling Contractors
- Consultants and Regulators
