Tracing of groundwater (e.g. tracing a municipal water system) is crucial to the understanding and solving many hydrological problems, such as contamination of the ground-water system, by interpreting tracer flow behaviour in groundwater. The main parameters that can be determined are the origin and outflow of water, mixing and flow paths of water within a system, groundwater residence time. These information can help for instance with figuring out how quickly a contaminant can propagate through the water system, the origin of the contamination, and identifying a clear flow pattern of water throughout the system.
Our variety of distinct tracer are required to perform detailed multi-tracer studies in complex groundwater systems, and to eliminate background problems originating from previous tracer tests.
By supporting local groundwater tracing efforts, our technology help protecting the water quality and promoting community health.
