Wellntel Announces Sensor Firmware V2 (SV2)

Today, Wellntel is announcing Wellntel Sensor Firmware V2 (SV2). This new firmware is important in two ways: 1.) It substantially improves the ability of an out-of-the-box sensor to find and track groundwater levels with little or no calibration in a wide range of physical and acoustic well conditions, and when situations in the field change. Therefore, it simplifies start-up, improvesContinue reading “Wellntel Announces Sensor Firmware V2 (SV2)”

As central oversight lessens, neighbors take resilience into their own hands

The need for continuous hydrological data is growing, while the ability of government agencies to collect and interpret these data is flat or declining.

Wellntel data confirm satellite-based groundwater trends

Providing networked data at the level needed to make informed decisions, take action, and manage local groundwater resources This colorful map, developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, provides an important view of the extent and level of drought and wetness in shallow aquifers across the United States. These regional conditions vary seasonally andContinue reading “Wellntel data confirm satellite-based groundwater trends”

“In a nonstationary world, continuity of observations is critical”*

Groundwater isn’t static anymore… It is true that groundwater as a natural resource has never been truly static, in the sense that it is constantly moving from points of recharge to points of natural discharge. All components of the hydrological cycle, including groundwater, move continually in response to large-scale physical drivers and the energy dynamicsContinue reading ““In a nonstationary world, continuity of observations is critical”*”

Rainfall impacting groundwater levels in Central California

Wellntel owners in central California are tracking the impacts of heavy rainfalls on groundwater levels in their wells. In a dramatic weather turn, the skies have opened up over an area that has suffered many months of drought. In Paso Robles, for example, there has been a total of seventeen inches of rainfall since October, with eleven of itContinue reading “Rainfall impacting groundwater levels in Central California”

Wellntel System Impresses in USGS Pump Test

At the invitation of scientists at USGS, a Wellntel system was deployed alongside redundant in-water level sensors in a monitoring well and gathered groundwater level data during pumping tests to evaluate groundwater availability. The result: a compelling argument for Wellntel as a dependably accurate instrument that can engage stakeholders with shared facts, in near realtime.Continue reading “Wellntel System Impresses in USGS Pump Test”
