The WS 131 features a simple design consisting of a PVC housing and an electronic sensor module that easily attache to the housing using a hand tightened ring nut. Once the sensor is installed, it transmits electrical pulses that are generated as water moves past the paddle wheel. The amount of water volume that passes through the pipe can be interpreted by an Eno Scientific water level meter like the Well Sounder 2010 Pro. During inactivity, the sensor can be removed and replaced with an inexpensive plug with the same kind of hand tightened ring nut concept.

 

Flow meter housings are available in various sizes. The 1", 1.5" and 2" housings are in-line tees made with Type 1 PVC with sockets for schedule 40 PVC pipes, and compatible with common PVC piping and adhesives. The 3" and 4" housings are saddle tees made of Type 1 PVC which clamps onto schedule 40 PCV pipes.

 

The paddle wheel is made of a tough polyethylene material and is the only object subject to wear in the entire system. In case of highly abrasive water flow, the paddle wheel may experience wear with time but is easily replaced without tools. 

 

The electronic flow sensor operates off a 5-24 VDC power supply and provides an output voltage on the signal line which switches between Vin and ground as the paddle wheel turns. Data collection is configurable by either plugging a ready-to-plug cable into the Well Sounder 2010 Pro, or with three-wire leads for connection to other data logging devices. An accessory splitter is necessary for the Well Sounder to monitor and log data from both the flow meter and the probe.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.

Harnessing the Gulf Stream for Renewable Energy

The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use. Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.

Buoys in the time of Covid: Delays to important information

In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl. Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.
