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.

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.Read More
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.Read More
In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl.
Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.Read More
