The tracing method is widely used in field dam leakage investigation, but the traditional radioisotope tracer method is facing a great deal of limitations due to realistic difficulties. Based on water environmental protection and water resources safety, a new environmentally-friendly tracing method, conductivity single hole dilution method, is developed in this study. This paper also briefly describes the new method about the experimental equipment, procedure and the application of this method to survey the speed of flow. The new method is of no pollution and with low cost. The simulation test proves the practicability of the new method. © 2013 WIT Press.
