Abstract:

Situation and Problem: Real-time monitoring of water quality data currently requires costly equipment and involved installation procedures. However, many water quality applications would benefit from an easy-to-install, low-cost monitoring sensor, so that more accurate and up-to-date decision-making data are available. Impacts are expected in public health, pollution amelioration, and agricultural productivity. Purpose: This grant will demonstrate a novel, lower-cost technology for real-time water quality data monitoring and acquisition, to enable much more rapid installation and use of real-time water quality installations. Phase I will show the technology and methods are practical and ready for full-scale development.
