Global Water's FL16 Water Flow Logger revolutionizes flow data collection for applications such as inflow & infiltration studies, stormwater and wastewater collection systems, open channels and a host of other gravity flow systems. The FL16 Water Flow Loggers will record over 81,000 depth, temperature, water flow and velocity readings in sewer and drainage pipes, as well as other open channel applications like flumes, weirs and square channels. The specially engineered, non-fouling water level sensor works in depths as little as 0.5 inch and allows for deployment in manholes and other difficult to access areas without the need to enter the confined space.

The FL16 Water Flow Recorder's vented water flow sensor is fully encapsulated with marine-grade epoxy.  The water flow sensor's electronics are encapsulated so that moisture can never leak in through O-ring seals or work its way into the vent tube and cause drift or sensor failure, as is the case with many other vented water flow sensors. The vent tube is sealed directly to the wet-wet sensing element, and any moisture that may enter the vent tube from the Water Flow Recorder's housing will only contact the ceramic parts, not the electronics.

FL16 Water Flow Recorder's user-friendly Windows-based software is tailored specifically for calculating water flows in partially filled sewer and drainage pipes using the Manning's Equation, with pull-down menus for selecting and entering the necessary information. The Water Flow Recorder software has a unique calibration feature which allows users to view calculated water velocity, compare this to actual measured data, and adjust the water flow parameters to calibrate for the water flow conditions of a specific application. Water flow equations for over 40 standard flumes and weirs are provided, as well as user-definable custom lookup tables which can be used to convert water level to flow for virtually any application. Once configured, all setup and water flow parameters are stored in the Water Flow Recorder's memory and are uploaded to the software automatically upon connection. This information can also be saved to a file for later use, allowing Water Flow Recorders to be deployed in multiple locations without the need to re-enter the water flow parameters each time the Water Flow Recorders are moved. The Water Flow Recorders operate on two standard 9 volt batteries, which they monitor so you are never caught off guard with dead batteries. A third onboard lithium battery ensures your data will be safe in the event you are unable to change the 9V batteries before they fail. An optional protective housing includes hardware for mounting the Water Flow Recorders to a manhole step or other structure and also allows for easy installation and replacement in the field.

Questions & Answers
To pull recorded data from the flow logger, will I need to provide a hardwire connection to a laptop?
Yes, that is correct. To download the data logged on the WL16 flow logger, you will need to connect to a PC with a CD ROM drive. This can be done via the USB cable that is provided with the logger.
Is the topside portion of the Global Water FL16 flow logger weatherproof?
The FL16 logger has a silicon coating for moisture protection and can operate in a 0-95% humidity (non-condensing) environment in temperatures from -40 to +85 C. Full specifications are available here:https://www.fondriest.com/pdf/global_water_fl16_spec.pdf

Biochar Adds Filtering Power to Biofilters

Contaminated stormwater threatens a lot of water in the United States. Nearly 50,000 miles of rivers, 760,000 acres of wetlands and one million acres of estuaries are threatened by contaminated stormwater, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency. Those numbers are cited in a review of research recently published in Environmental Science: Water Resource & Technology that looks at one tool for tackling that threat: biochar-augmented biofilters.

Going, Going, Gone: Endangered Species Recovery and Conservation

Across the planet, biodiversity and natural habitats are declining dramatically. Countless species of flora and fauna around the world are being listed as either threatened, endangered, or extinct. According to a 2019 UN Study , around one million species are already at risk of extinction. Unless action is taken to reduce the causes of biodiversity loss, many of these species could disappear within the next few decades. Invasive species, habitat destruction, pollution, and other environmental stressors are all major causes of biodiversity decline. While high biodiversity is synonymous with places like the Amazon Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, it can also be found locally.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.
