The world relies on groundwater, which is why there are many monitoring requirements in place by the Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. CWM has experience in the five basic types of groundwater monitoring: Ambient, Compliance, Assessment, Remediation, and Post-Closure Monitoring.
CWM Environmental field and laboratory technicians from both our Cleveland location and Kittanning location are equipped with the knowledge and expertise necessary to satisfy groundwater monitoring requirements compliant with state and federal government regulatory standards. Our Kittanning laboratory is certified under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and is NELAP accredited for drinking water.
Representative and comparable analytical data and detailed records for groundwater or surface water monitoring programs are dependent on consistent and reliable sampling methods, detailed observations and analytical techniques. Our groundwater technicians maintain field logbooks for each sampling point, record test data, prepare reports, summaries, and/or charts that interpret test results.
CWM technicians test wells drilled at various depths and locations to reflect different strata of groundwater at customer sites. Once the volume of the well is known, the groundwater is purged from the well with dedicated Grundfos pumps, non-dedicated pump and reels, micro purge bladder pumps and manual bailers. This process takes place to clear the well of stagnant water, allowing it to recharge with fresh water. Two to three volumes of water are purged to allow for a representative sample and parameters are measured until stable (pH, conductivity, turbidity, ORP and temperature).
Who Needs Groundwater Monitoring?
Each technician follows a quality control plan to ensure that proper field calibration, sampling, transporting, analytical and documentation procedures are followed.
