High levels of groundwater in a well can cause contaminated water to flow toward other bodies of water. Groundwater can be extracted through a well drilled into the aquifer. A well is a pipe in the ground that fills with groundwater. This water can be brought to the surface by a pump.

Why Should I Extract?

Pumping water from the well removes water and any dissolved or floating contaminants from inside the well.

What Benefits Will I Get?

Extracting groundwater will help minimize contaminants from migrating away from the well and keeping the contaminated area from expanding. This becomes critical when contaminants cross property lines and boundaries or infiltrate rivers, lakes, streams , oceans or drinking water aquifers.

How Do I Do It?

QED pumps are ideal for landfill pumping, with its fluctuating flow rate and discharge head requirements, challenging down-well environments and special hazards that make other pumps unsuitable. Ever since users first adapted our monitoring well purge pumps to collect leachate, a continuous program of customer-driven engineering advances has created the industry's most complete, highest performance landfill pumping product line.
