Radio Data Networks is one of the largest suppliers of real-time borehole & groundwater monitoring systems. Our systems can be found deployed widely across Europe and are used in the UK by the Environment Agency.
Boreholes are constructed into water-bearing formations (aquifers) with a common misconception that boreholes are used to ‘suck water out of the ground’. Water abstracted from the ground using a pump resulting in a drawdown in the water level in the borehole creating a hydraulic gradient between water in the borehole and groundwater in the aquifer.
Our groundwater and borehole monitoring systems allows measurements to be collected routinely, at a high frequency across multiple locations and removes the potential errors or delays associated with manual monitoring.
