Nalgene Storm Water Sampler
- Affordable, convenient, and EPA compliant
- Eliminates the need for sample transfer before transport to lab
- Can be securely mounted in storm water ditch, stream, or storm grate outfall
|77275||Storm Water Sampler, single use HDPE bottles, pack of 4|
|Usually ships in 3-5 days|
|77271||Storm Water Sampler mounting kit, reusable|
|Usually ships in 3-5 days|
The Storm Water Sampler collects a full one-liter sample of first flush storm water within the first 30 minutes of a rain event in compliance with EPA sampling requirements. A floating ball valve seals off the sample collection port to prevent co-mingling with run-off water as well as volatile analyte loss. Water flows through the sampler's collection funnel directly into a Nalgene sample bottle so that no sample transfer is necessary before transport to the lab.
After sampling is complete, remove the collection bottle from the reusable storm water sampler mounting kit's tube (see accessories). Simply discard the bottle's collection funnel and replace with a standard Nalgene closure for leakproof transport. To do future sampling, just insert a new storm water sampler in the tube. Because a new sample bottle is used each time, no decontamination is needed. The Storm Water Sampler can be securely mounted in a storm water ditch, stream, or storm grate outfall using the storm water sampler mounting kit.
- Sampler Dimensions: 13.2" H x 3.8" Dia.
- Mounting Kit Dimensions: 15.6" H x 4.6" Dia.

Where and how to monitor water quality is always a challenge, particularly in complex aquatic ecosystems. The new REASON Project from a team at Clarkson University is working to demonstrate the utility of using water quality instrumentation in dams on major rivers in the Great Lakes system.
Clarkson University Professor of Biology Michael Twiss spoke with EM about the new approach their team is taking at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam across the St. Lawrence River and the benefits the development of smart infrastructure such as this might offer.
“The upper St. Lawrence River is defined as that which leaves Lake Ontario and is just upstream from the city of Montreal,” explains Dr. Twiss.Read More
As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis.
The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it.
“This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.”
From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture.
Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&;M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS.
“TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.Read More
