The final step in the process involved the programming and deploying of Solinst leveloggers. The leveloggers were installed at an elevation of -2 meters below sea level (NGVD 29) and were programmed to log water table levels every 15 minutes. A barologger was installed in one of the wells in order to provide for atmospheric corrections. The leveloggers are currently in a testing period.
Soil Water Monitoring
In the coming weeks, we will install EnviroScan probes near the well locations to monitor soil water in the different soil types (i.e., Krome, Chekika and Marl) of the agricultural areas along the C-111 canal. Stay tuned!
