FORT COLLINS -- In-Situ Inc. announced it donated 11 groundwater level dip tapes to The Ministry of Water Resources in Sierra Leone to monitor levels at wells and boreholes near Ebola care facilities.
Sierra Leone is in the grip of the worst Ebola outbreak in its history and the tapes will be deployed to local councils to help establish an initial national groundwater monitoring network, In-Situ said.
“The donation of water level tapes is already making a difference,” said Mohamed Sahr E Juanah, Sierra Leone’s head of water resources. “The Ministry of Water Resources can now train and equip more technical personnel to assist with ongoing assessments of water supplies at Ebola care facilities.
“This increased capacity to monitor levels is particularly important and is timely to help us assess water supplies during the use and gradual decommissioning of Ebola care facilities.”
In-Situ equipment – including dip meters and Rugged TROLL 100 water level loggers – has been supplied to Sierra Leone since 2012, part of an effort to rebuild water monitoring networks destroyed during a 10-year civil war that ended in 2001.
