Ground Water Joint Field Survey in Dniepr basin Ukraine, May 2013

The purpose of the joint field survey was:

  • To fill in data gaps on groundwater in the pilot Dniepr river basin ;
  • To train groundwater experts from Ukraine to perform WFD compliant groundwater monitoring using modern monitoring equipment.

Three groundwater experts and CWME-Ukraine participated in the joint field survey.
20 groundwater samples have been collected from the monitoring and production wells for the analyses of main cations and anions and trace elements. Some chemical parameters ( pH, temperature, electric conductivity and total dissolved solids) have been measured in the field at the sampling point.
Information collected during the field survey will be used for characterisation and classification of groundwater bodies.
