J Gomboso, F Ghassemi, Groundwater modelling and optimal salinity control in the North Stirling Land Conservation District, Western Australia, Mathematics and Computers in Simulation, /(92)E, 33, , (), ().Cited by: The groundwater salinity classification based on Wilcox () criteria falls under the category of excellent to good class (permissible limit) when the total groundwater salinity is less than 1 dS m –1 and the Na percentage ranges between 25 to around 60 as shown in Fig. 3. An evaluation of long-term monitoring data on the depth to groundwater in the main GFS in a region provides a useful indication of salinity trends. The risk of salinity spread can be related to the type of GFS operating in the area. Each focus area contains a network of bores to monitor the depth to groundwater. A salinity monitoring plan must be an integral part of any agricultural project which deals with irrigation water which has a salinity and/or sodicity constituent. An effective salinity monitoring plan must, thus, be developed so that salinity changes can be traced, especially for the root-zone soil.

This Manual is a “recipe” book – it has been designed to show you how to test you soils and groundwater so that you can monitor their condition and then change your water and paddock management (based on the information these tests provide) to prevent the loss of the productive capacity of your soil. The USGS works in collaboration with partners to monitor groundwater levels using the framework of the National Groundwater Monitoring Network (NGWMN). This collaborative groundwater network of Federal, State, and local agency data providers was authorized by the SECURE Water Act in and aims to build and refine a national network of wells that meet specific criteria. Groundwater is also the source of a large percentage of surface water. To verify that groundwater is suited for its purpose, its quality can be evaluated (i.e., monitored) by collecting samples and analyzing them. In simplest terms, the purpose of groundwater monitoring is to define the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of. Groundwater Quality Monitoring March HYROLOGY PROJECT Technical Assistance 2 2. Monitoring Objectives The objectives for quality monitoring of groundwater may be stated as follows: a) to provide background data against which future changes can be assessed b) to allow early tracing of both slow and rapid quality changes and deterioration.

  Remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) are very useful tool and offer a good option to traditional techniques in monitoring and evaluation of waterlogged and saline areas. This paper presents an overview of the applications of remote sensing and GIS techniques for the management of water resources problems of irrigated agriculture. Increased groundwater salinity also related to high concentrations of some of the elements like sodium, sulphate, boron, fluoride, selenium, arsenic and high radioactivity. 1 Salinity is a worldwide problem but becomes more brutal in water-scarce arid and semi-arid areas where groundwater is the principal source of water. Increasing demands for. Monitoring wells are usually secured with a locking cover or bolted metal housing, either at ground level in a traffic-rated utility or well box (Figure 3) or inside a 2- to 3-foot-tall metal pipe housing. Inside the housing, the actual monitoring well (usually a 2- or 4-inch PVC pipe) is sealed with an expandable rubber plug that can be locked. The assessment of the ground water quality was carried out in the different wards of Indore City. The present work is aimed at assessing the water quality index (WQI) for the ground water of Indore City and its industrial ground water samples of all the selected stations from the wards were collected for a physiochemical analysis.
