Abstract:

It is currently time consuming and expensive to install water quality monitoring stations to report data on water quality to researchers and monitoring agencies quickly and efficiently. In this project, we will develop the technology to improve the gathering and reporting of such data. The end product after commercialization of the results of this project will be a novel system that provides real-time monitoring at significant savings in cost and complexity. The availability of this technology will enable commercial entities, as well as state, local, and federal agencies charged with monitoring the nation's waters to greatly expand their real-time coverage with little added to their existing budgets, providing both societal and economic benefits.
