Natural groundwater collected around the tunnels operated by Eurotunnel is continuously monitored before being pumped to the coast and discharged into the sea. Six multiparameter water quality monitoring systems have been customdesigned by HACH LANGE to ensure that there is no potential for harmful water to enter the pipelines. Each monitoring system is connected to a sophisticated data collection and alarm system that is able to divert water into vast underground sumps if alarm conditions occur.
