Tools for New Groundwater Sustainability Agency’s (GSA)
In accordance with guidelines created under the Sustainability Groundwater Management Act each groundwater basin in the State will have an Agency (GSA) dedicated to to acquiring and reporting specific groundwater data and parameters for each well. For more specifics on Sustainable Groundwater Management, you can visit the CA Dept of Water Resources.
EnviroTech is a Company that provides products and instrumentation for acquiring that data, including the tools needed to satisfy many GSA requirements. This series is dedicated to the primary tools any GSA will need.
To start all wells will need to be measured for depth and possibly datalogged. Here are two tools of the trade.
1) Water Level Meters
There are a host of meters to choose from but it can be assumed a GSA will require a water level meter with depth. Here is the most cost effective and efficient of all the brands available. Other excellent brands can be obtained through our website or catalog.
Featured Product: Coaxial Cable Water Level Meter
The Solinst Model 102 Water Level Meter is designed to measure groundwater levels, especially in small diameter (pumping ports) and deep wells. It is light and portable. The P10 Probe is recommended to provide enough weight in deeper wells. This is the go-to tool for GSA work.
Also know as dataloggers or transducers, these tools will measure rising and falling water levels in a well over time at pre-programmed intervals.
Featured Product: The Solinst Levelogger Junior Edge is an excellent cost savings way of collecting data from shallow environments. All you need is basic communication package then drop down a well, retrieve then download the data.
