In the case of pollutants that are transported in the water of rivers, lakes or seas, a water sampling study can lead to a better understanding of the pollution source and remediation requirements.
Among the techniques that are used are:
- Current measurements using specialized instruments;
- Detailed bathymetry/water depth measurements;
- Water sampling at targeted points, followed by laboratory analysis;
- Temperature, conductivity, and salinity measurements in-situ at targeted points.
The combination of current measurements, bathymetry and water sampling studies are vital for the design of effective remediation plans.
