Piezometer and Monitoring Well Installation

Groundwater monitoring wells or piezometers may be installed within soil borings installed at a property to collect data about the underlying groundwater table. This is often completed when shallow groundwater may be suspected at a site, if site engineering and construction specifications require extensive building footers to be installed, or if substantial grading activities are proposed. Properly constructed groundwater monitoring wells and piezometers are designed and installed to meet site conditions.

 

The locations of the groundwater monitoring wells or piezometers are added to the site plan and vertically surveyed so that the depth to groundwater can be used to calculate the direction of groundwater flow and the hydraulic gradient at the site. Groundwater recovery rates can be calculated by performing draw-down or pumping tests using down-hole pumps. Piezometers or groundwater monitoring wells may be installed and left in place to provide long-term groundwater elevation data, to conduct pumping tests and slug tests for calculations of hydraulic conductivity, or to assist with dewatering activities to facilitate construction and excavation. Downhole pressure transducers and dataloggers can be installed to collect long term groundwater elevation data. Point to Point Environmental offers hydrogeologic studies and employs latest in subsurface investigation technology including utilizing hydraulic profiling tool (HPT) to characterize electric conductivity and lithologic permeability.
