A battery powered Prosonic M is used to measure water in large water ponds. PVC stilling wells are used to prevent signal loss when aquatic plant life may grow on the pond bottom.

Company profile
Potable water recharge project The customer operates a “Water Bank” project. They currently purchase large quantities of Colorado river water and bank it into the ground in anticipation of being able to pump it out and sell for a higher price in the future.

Application
Water retention and settling basins. Installed on large ponds from 40 to 500 acres to monitor the water level (approximately 51 MGD). The ambient temperature can exceed115°F (46°C).
