The Hach CEL Environmental Water Quality Laboratory Kit is designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. Including a DR900 colorimeter and all of the necessary reagents for testing, the kit is enclosed in a durable carrying case that is easily portable. The battery-operated colorimeter means tests can be run immediately without concern for sample preparation and handling, ensuring rapid testing and decision making.
Water quality parameters that can be tested include: acidity, alkalinity, ammonia, carbon dioxide, chlorine (free), chlorine (total), hardness, iron, manganese, nitrate, nitrite, phosphorus, sulfide/hydrogen sulfide, tannin, lignin, and zinc.

Researchers at Indiana University say wetlands in isolated areas play big roles in providing clean water and other environmental benefits, according to a release from the school . This is in spite of the fewer regulatory protections for isolated wetlands to other similar wetlands.
“Geographically isolated wetlands provide important benefits such as sediment and carbon retention, nutrient transformation and water-quality improvement, all of which are critical for maintaining water quality,” said John Marton, assistant scientist at IU Bloomington’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Continued losses of the isolated wetlands could cause serious harm to North American waters.Read More
Scientists at the National University of Singapore are working to develop a robot based on the biological structures of sea turtles to study water quality, according to TreeHugger . The robot will be designed to carry sensors and get its power from solar panels.
The robot will swim much like an actual turtle does with flippers. And it won’t have a ballast system for propulsion, which researchers believe will help to make it lighter and more efficient.
After development of the base model, scientists plan to scale up capabilities by coordinating swarms of the robotic turtles in monitoring applications.
“We can have a swarm of tiny turtles which communicate with each other and act collaboratively to perform their duties,” said S.K.Read More
The Chesapeake Bay just can’t catch a break. As if a recent spell of unusually high ice coverage wasn’t enough, most of the bay is still afflicted by poor water quality — even though long-term nutrient and sediment levels are declining, according a press release from the Chesapeake Bay Program.
Analysis of data from 2013 reveals that pollution flowing into the bay from nine of its major tributaries was below the 25-year average, which could be good news for its long-term health. However, from 2011 to 2013, the bay met less than a third of the water quality standards established to support plant and animal life.Read More
