Monitoring probe system design and installation

Monitoring probe system design and installation


  • Scope:

    Design supply install and calibrate soil moisture probes for irrigated forest and fodder crops including:

    • Interpretation of EM survey data to identify preferred site locations
    • Optimisation of probe locations and numbers for proportional representation across soil types
    • Soil sampling for probe calibration
    • Report on volumetric ion content and soil moisture content calibration equations
    • Real time, web based data presentation
    • GPS survey and map final probe installation locations
  • Benefit to Client:

    Monitoring systems provided the client with real-time data to meet system control and compliance requirements.  Verterra's environmental and operational monitoring for coal seam gas water irrigation of forest and fodder crops ensured system parameters remained within licence conditions, and that water management and, in turn, gas production, could continue unabated.
