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.

A Lesson in Persistence: Taking On Cyanobacteria in Florida

As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis. The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it. “This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.” Dr.

Keeping TABS on the Texas Gulf Coast

From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture. Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS. “TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.

Watchful Eyes on One of Maine's Crown Jewels: Jordan Pond

Formed by a glacier, Jordan Pond is among Maine's clearest, most beautiful bodies of water. It's also a critical freshwater resource, and watchful eyes are protecting it. EM spoke with Dr. Rachel Fowler, Friends of Acadia's aquatic scientist, about her work monitoring Jordan Pond. A postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Maine, she is a member of a partnership among the National Park Service, the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, and Friends of Acadia that began deploying the Jordan Pond buoy in 2013. Canon provided the initial support for the project. Friends of Acadia is a nonprofit organization that supports different projects in the park.
