Project Description

Lysimeters are devices that allow for collection and sampling of pore water from soil above the groundwater table. The device has a porous ceramic cup at the end, and pore water is pulled into the lysimeter device by applying a negative pressure/ vacuum on the inside of the device. Lysimeters can be installed at various depths below the ground surface depending upon the pore water zone of interest. Lysimeters must be permitted and installed by licensed well drillers in the State of Delaware, and CGC Geoservices has experience with installation and servicing of these devices throughout the state.
