Wellntel combines patented, next-generation acoustic measurement technology, remote telemetry, and a cloud platform, to collect accurate and reliable groundwater-level measurements from a wide range of production and monitoring wells. Stakeholders can bring new networks online quickly and cost-effectively.
Any well is a monitoring well:
Because Wellntel doesn’t touch water, almost any private (domestic, irrigation, community) well can be a monitoring well, greatly increasing density and deployment options. Sensors use existing well seal access ports or well caps can be easily modified to bring new monitoring points online in less than an hour.
Water-level reading precision will be 0.1 ft or better within the operational depth range of 10 - 1,000 ft with a D2W (Distance to Water) measurement and a well water temperature measurement, collected at installation, and entered during online system registration. These two input measurements are used to calibrate the well air-temperature model used in the cloud to provide accurate depth values from raw time measurements. More information on accuracy can be found here.
No instrument drift:
Once calibrated, recalibration will only be needed if there is a substantial change in environmental factors, such as a physical change to the well. A distinct advantage of a Wellntel system is that there is no instrument “drift” as is experienced with many other methods. Data is processed and made model- or report-ready from the onset, without time-consuming and error-prone assembly or import/export systems.
Dense, actionable datasets:
Wellntel systems default to measure static water level every hour. If a well pump is running at the time of measurement, the reading is meta-tagged for pump-influence and can be excluded or included in future analysis.
Secure data storage and access:
Wellntel takes groundwater data privacy and security very seriously. Our groundwater information system is designed for end to end security and privacy with device-level encryption. Water managers and well owners control the privacy and sharing sharing settings.
