Province to incorporate technology to measure groundwater levels

Teams from the National Infrastructure and Water Policy Secretariat, along with the Entre Rios Water Directorate, visit the cities of Gualéguechu and Concordia. In their field work, technical teams from both organizations carry out the tasks set out in the Federal National Groundwater Plan, which will allow resource monitoring as part of the “Integrated Management of Water Resources”.

The National Hydrological Network, in coordination with the Federal Water Council (COHIF), and as part of groundwater monitoring, will “install in various jurisdictions that are members of the Council, freetimemetric stations with automated meteorological stations,” explained the director Hydraulics, Christian Geitz.

“Professional teams carried out relevant field assessments to proceed in the definition of terrain conditions and subsequent installation of the equipment,” also detailed the head of hydraulics of the province.

Similarly, Monica García, Vice President of COHIF and technician of the provincial body, specified that “these stations are already installed in the province of La Pampa and, this time and following the schedule, they will be installed in our province, will continue later.” With Chaco and Missions”.

The National Hydrology Network monitors surface waters and is currently integrating groundwater, achieving the long-awaited objective of holistic monitoring of the resource as part of the Integrated Management of Water Resources.

What is a water meter and what is it used for?

Freemeters are holes of variable diameter designed to control height and/or sampling for the first layer of water (phretic) for analysis.

“These studies are essential for planning drilling aimed at obtaining drinking water,” Geitz specified.

What are automatic weather stations and what are they for?

Automated weather stations are equipped with measuring instruments consisting of rain gauges, anemometers and their respective panels. These instruments measure meteorological variables: precipitation, temperature, soil moisture, ambient temperature, wind speed and direction.
