(iii) logger remote vJesdata System ar;d transducer. site monitoring rnonitorino;;c situations. consisting of a single channel This system was required for in test pumping and long term As most of the equipment was alien to the groundwater role, a signiJ:icant proportion of time was required to be spent on proving and testing components and developing a vlOrkable system. A.ll systems trialled demonstrated poor reliability and the Elxpected accuracy limit was not achieved. Faul ts were encountered in the 11indata and Torrens software and all hardware except the Kent Pressure transducer. The \'lesdata equipment is not recommended for further use due to an assess::nent of its unsuitability. A mlnlmum specification desired for all future equipment purchases has been proposed in section 9.3. However, in the interim, continuous trial of existing electronic logging equipment is recommended to facilitate the establishment of procedure and i.nfrastructure. This measure will allow further examination of specification. proposed equipment to with careful selection to the required superceed the current system it will not be expected to pose a compromlse ~lith established procedures and infrastructure. 'rhe consists interim system of a Mindata for the logging of test pumping data 3500 series logger, a 20m vented transducer f Kent pressure transducer to monitor flmv and two Cherryville loggers wi th 20m vented transducers to be availa.ble for IT.oni toring observation bores. Cherryville single channel loggers \dth Mindata 10 and 20m vented transducers are recommended for further trial in remote water level monitoring situations.
