HyQuest Solutions’ TB4 Series II is a high-quality tipping bucket rain gauge for measuring rainfall in urban and rural locations. Due to the integrated syphon, the gauge delivers high levels of accuracy across a broad range of rainfall intensities.
The tried and proven design of the TB4 Series II ensures long-term, accurate and repeatable results. It is manufactured from high quality, durable materials ensuring long-term stability in the harshest of environments. It consists of a robust powder-coated aluminium enclosure, a UV-resistant ASA polymer base, a teflon bucket, and stainless steel fasteners and finger filter.
TB4 Series II provides a finger filter that ensures the collector catch area remains unblocked when leaves, bird droppings and other debris find their way into the catch. The base incorporates two water outlets at the bottom allowing for water collection and data verification.
Maintenance of the TB4 Series II is easy, because removal of the outer enclosure and access to the tipping bucket mechanism and finger filter assembly is made easy with quick release fasteners. The new more spacious enclosure makes maintenance even easier.
TB4 Series II includes a dual output 24 V DC reed switch allowing for output redundancy or the addition of a second data logger. The reed switch incorporates varistor protection against surges that may be induced on long, inappropriately shielded signal cables.

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.Read More
A few years after Ohio became a state in 1803, George Harner arrived in Greene County with a land deed signed by then-President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. The homestead was largely old forest and wetlands and also included a fen-fed stream—the Beaver Creek.
As was the case with much of the Ohio Territory, the forests eventually gave way to land clearing and grain farming. Harner’s descendants, including his son John and John’s wife, Sarah Koogler, continued to work the rich soil for many years to follow.
Much of the original property and surrounding land has fallen prey to urban sprawl.Read More
Each fall in Puget Sound, coho salmon leave the salt water and swim up freshwater streams. They head upstream to spawn: lay their eggs and die.
Death is always the end of this journey for coho salmon, but in streams now running through urban areas, stormwater runoff kills them before they can spawn.
This phenomenon, called Urban Runoff Mortality Syndrome, can kill up to 70-90% of coho salmon in an affected area.
“‘Woah’ is a pretty common response,” said Kathy Peter, a research scientist formerly at University of Washington Tacoma and the Center for Urban Waters.
This phenomenon adds pressure to the Puget Sound population, already considered a species of concern by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act.Read More
