Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Are the sampling bottles autoclavable?
The bottles are made from a food-grade, high-density polyethylene with a vinyl lined cap to ensure a tight fit. However, they are not sterile nor autoclavable. The Nasco swing sampler can be used with other bottles to fit your needs.
What does autoclavable mean?
If an object is autoclavable, it means that the it can withstand the high pressure and temperature produced in an autoclave. An autoclave is used to sterilize equipment by subjecting it a high pressure steam (15-30 psi and 121-134 degrees Celsius) for 10-20 minutes. The exact pressure/temperature/time required depends on the item being sterilized. The bottle included with the Nasco Swing Sampler is not autoclavable.
Do you sell just the bottle swing/holder with out the pole?
Yes, we do carry the plastic clamps (part #W1220) and the bottles (part #W1244) separately. They can be found under the Accessories tab.
Will the nasco telescoping swing sampler hold a standard 1L glass amber bottle?
The Nasco swing sampler can be used with any bottle that fits inside the adjustable locking ring. The ring has an adjustable internal diameter of 3 7/8 inches to 4 inches. If the bottle doesn't fit within these diameters, you may be able to attach it to the sampler with alterative fasteners of your choice.

Thousands of Mount Everest hikers add to area’s groundwater contamination

Nepal’s Mount Everest is a wonder to behold. Sitting at more than 29,000 feet, many attempt to summit it each year. And though some climbers don’t make it to the top, all of them have an effect on the mountain’s ecosystem. What’s more, say scientists at Ball State University, the quantities of trash and human waste they leave behind are having disgusting effects on water quality downstream. At the bottom of Mount Everest, there are Sherpa communities too poor to afford water treatment plants and their members often drink untreated water straight off the mountain. “You can find almost every kind of waste. Everything from water bottles, batteries, cans, toilet paper,” said Kirsten Nicholson, professor of geological sciences at Ball State.

(Courtesy: NASA/JPL-Caltech.)[/caption] El Niño and La Niña are recurrent warming and cooling patterns in the tropical Pacific Ocean that affect weather patterns around the world. While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.

Achieving Buy-in: The Importance of Community Involvement in Water Challenges

It's a fact that every resident of every state has a vested interest in water quality issues and the management of natural resources. However, too often the challenges posed by natural resource management are met by various battling groups of stakeholders with apparently different interests. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is funding a research project called, “Securing Water for and From Agriculture Through Effective Community and Stakeholder Engagement,” and its participants are hoping that what they learn about achieving buy-in from various stakeholders and the community involvement that follows can help resolve some of these repeating conflicts.
