Webinar: Groundwater and Soil Monitoring
Author: Michael Penzo
This Live Webinar course provides an overview of groundwater and soil monitoring best practices. Topics include methods of installing monitoring wells and collecting groundwater samples to ensure samples are representative of water from an aquifer. These methods attempt to minimize the potential for the introduction of contaminants into the ground through the process of installing monitoring wells.
Wells and sampling devices can be constructed of materials that have a minimum tendency to leach materials into and sorb compounds from the water sample. Groundwater samples can be collected in such a way that dissolved gases are not lost or exchanged with the atmospheric gases. Soil samples can also be collected for classification and chemical analysis.
Methods of collecting soil water are also presented in this course. Soil gas sampling can be done to give an indication of areas where volatile organic compounds are contained in the soil or groundwater.
This Live Webinar course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Monitoring well installation methods and groundwater sampling procedures
- Preventing contamination of groundwater through proper well construction
- Soil water and soil gas sampling
