We are pleased to share with you our latest news coming from independent sources. The US Department of Energy has issued a short article on Passive Sampling use and specifically HydraSleeves.
EM’s Use of Cost-Effective Passive Groundwater Sampling Grows
Please click the link for the entire story. Here's a quote from the article that summarizes the HydraSleeve news in a paragraph.
"A passive sampling strategy involving a device known as Hydrasleeve is employed at about 230 wells at the Savannah River Site (SRS) and is expected to save EM more than $2.5 million over the life of the site’s groundwater monitoring program. Preferred for use with wells with small sample volume requirements, the Hydrasleeve, a flexible plastic bag permeable to water and contaminants, allows remediation engineers to monitor for contaminants such as trichloroethylene and tritium left by Cold War operations without purging, a time-consuming practice of removing water that often must be disposed as hazardous or radioactive waste."
Naturally, we are always happy to post another independent study when they come along. Please take a look at this short, 1-page summary on how passive sampling is saving millions for this groundwter monitoring program.
