The Thermo Orion Scientific Orion AQUAfast AQ3170 colorimeter kit measures free and total chlorine in the range of 0.02 to 2.00 mg/L, or 0.1 to 8.00 mg/L with short path-length vial (included). Measuring free and total chlorine using the DPD method, the AQ3170 colorimeter and included reagents assist with EPA drinking water measurement requirements. The colorimeter’s Interference Filter uniquely narrows (targets) the bandwidth, creating accurate and reproducible readings. The included sample vials also help reduce preparation time by utilizing lid-attached light shields instead of a cumbersome sample chamber cover.

The meter kit includes a field carrying case, sample vials with light-shielding caps, a vial cleaning brush, 100 each of AQUAfast AC4P71 Free Chlorine and AC4P72 Total Chlorine powder reagent packets and batteries. The meter carries a CE certification and a two-year warranty.

Data-Driven Decisions: Tracking Sediment during the Klamath Dam Removal

The largest dam removal in U.S. history, the deconstruction of the Klamath Dam is slated to begin this summer. The project includes four dams along the Klamath River with the first and smallest dam, Copco #2, scheduled for removal first. As each of the dams are torn down, scientists and consultants will keep a close eye on the state of the Klamath River downstream to assess the impact of undamming the river. Shawn Hinz, managing partner and environmental toxicologist with Gravity Consulting , has been involved with the Klamath Dam project for over a decade. Hinz was a part of these earlier steps, representing the academic stakeholder position as a graduate student sitting on a board of other stakeholders.

While all the work that goes into providing clean water often goes unnoticed, analysts like Michele Gilkerson, a water research analyst with the City of Columbus Division of Water, know exactly how much goes into securing safe water for millions of people. Gilkerson started with Battelle Memorial Institute in 1991 in their water ecology section. There, she saw how interesting source water monitoring could be, even though it isn’t often spotlighted in the environmental sector.
