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.

Not So Quiet Polar Night: Arctic Creatures Found to be Active During Dark Part of the Year

Most people need little more than a comfortable pillow, a blanket, and a dark room to drift off into a multi-hour snooze. Many researchers assumed that once plunged into darkness for about half the year during the polar night, most polar creatures would do the same: fall asleep and take a big nap for as long as the darkness lasted. But Jon Cohen, associate professor of marine sciences, school of marine science and policy, in the College of Earth, Ocean, and the Environment at the University of Delaware, wondered if that was true. Despite the technical challenges of monitoring biota in very low light conditions, Cohen and his team were determined to find out if krill, copepods, and other creatures were dozing off in the dark or seeking out prey, light, and each other.

Orange Stream Dreams: Monitoring Acid Mine Drainage and Watershed Health

Not many young people pondering careers come up with the words “acid mine drainage.” But Jen Bowman, Director of Environmental Programs at the Voinovich School at Ohio University, could not help but be fascinated by what she saw during her days as an Ohio University student collecting field samples. “My interest in acid mine drainage, and how it affects watersheds, goes way back to my undergraduate days,” she explains. “We saw firsthand how streams could be impacted by drainage from abandoned mines. Sometimes streams had such severe problems they turned orange. It was hard not to be struck by that. I was drawn in to the many associated challenges, keeping watersheds clean, and improving stream health.
