Long-Term Monitoring and System Optimization

A new surge of interest in DSTs that are focused on optimizing long-term groundwater monitoring systems reflects the difficulty of obtaining concurrence from project stakeholders on a monitoring system that may be in place for as long as 30 years. This page features a DST that provides a package of statistical methods for analyzing trends in concentrations in groundwater at individual monitoring wells to evaluate where monitoring wells should be added to or removed from the overall well network.
