Why Do We Need to Sample Groundwater?

July 13, 2021

Plastech Plus, PVC Plus, Groundwater Sampling

Frequently used during geothermal exploration, groundwater sampling has become a rising issue for many industries today. Due to various processes used to collect groundwater, many chemicals and influences can occur and pollute our precious resource. This natural source can be acquired through aquifers that use several different downhole and wellhead methods.

These practices can be safely carried out by a hydrologist, geologist, or geochemist. Even though there is much chemistry behind sampling and testing groundwater, it can be relatively simple when done by professionals. As water quality can only be as good as the samples collected, it is imperative to ensure that they are done correctly and thoroughly.

The frequency of samples can depend on both the reasoning behind it and the results achieved. When you have larger wells, such as production wells, testing once per year or even once per few years is enough for accurate results. When you are dealing with a smaller well, such as domestic wells, groundwater sampling should be performed at least twice a year to ensure results have not changed for the worst.
