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.

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.

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.
