Frequently Asked Questions


A monitoring well is a structure drilled into the ground to access groundwater for sampling and measurement purposes. It allows for the monitoring of groundwater levels, quality, and flow over time, providing essential data for environmental and resource management.


The depth of monitoring wells varies depending on the specific requirements of the site and the aquifers being monitored. They can range from a few metres to several hundred metres deep, ensuring they reach the appropriate groundwater levels for accurate monitoring.


Sampling a monitoring well involves using specialised equipment to collect groundwater samples from the well. The process typically includes purging the well to remove stagnant water and then using a pump or bailer to retrieve fresh samples for laboratory analysis.


A monitoring well is used to observe and collect data on groundwater conditions, while a recovery well is designed to extract groundwater, often for remediation purposes. Recovery wells are used to remove contaminated groundwater or to lower groundwater levels in a specific area.


Groundwater is monitored by measuring water levels, collecting samples for quality analysis, and tracking changes over time. This involves using monitoring wells equipped with instruments to record data and ensure continuous observation of groundwater conditions.


While both monitoring wells and piezometers are used to measure groundwater levels, piezometers are typically smaller in diameter and designed specifically to measure the pressure and depth of groundwater in confined aquifers. Monitoring wells, on the other hand, provide broader data on groundwater quality and flow.
