Tracking Water Availability
30% of the Earth’s freshwater resources are contained in aquifers beneath the surface. 69% remains inaccessible due to being locked in ice or glaciers. In many parts of the world, water from aquifers provide the vast majority of agricultural and drinking water. This critical resource is being used up at an alarming rate. In many places it can take hundreds or even thousands of years to recharge the aquifers, leading to wells running dry and limiting access to water millions of people, farms and industry.
Tracking water levels and availability is critically important at multiple levels of use, from the individual farmer to national governments. Since aquifers often cross national boundaries, this information is important even to international trade and political organizations. Understanding water availability allows users to make policy and management decisions having immediate and long-term impacts on sustainable operations.
The H20Track™ Sensor
The H20Track™ system uses a high grade industrial quality pressure sensor to provide long term, continuous monitoring of water levels within the well. The system can be used in deep or shallow wells with maximum water levels of 500m. Compact and rugged design makes for easy installation in multiple environments. CE and RoHS certified. Dynamic temperature and automatic barometric compensation result in high accuracy and reliability.
