Reliance on Groundwater with YSI

Necessity of Groundwater Resources

Groundwater is one of the world’s most precious resources. It is the primary source of drinking water for approximately ½ of the world’s population and immense amounts of groundwater are utilized for agriculture. Overuse has led to the depletion of our groundwater resources resulting in a drying up of wells, decrease in groundwater quality, saltwater intrusion, land subsidence, and a reduction in surface water levels. Our groundwater resources are not only threatened by excess extraction, they are also threatened by industrial, agricultural, and municipal sources of contamination.


Proven Groundwater Solutions


Parameters such as dissolved oxygen, pH, ORP, conductivity, salinity, total dissolved solids, nitrate, temperature, turbidity and level are often used as indicators of groundwater quality, and high-quality sensors for each of these are available from YSI. Our rugged and reliable multi-parameter instrumentation can be used for spot sampling down well or in a flow cell while our sondes can provide long-term, unattended monitoring with real time data acquisition. Our pressure transducers provide accurate measurement of level and are ideal for aquifer testing.
