USGS Breakdown Top Setting Wading Rods
- Available in English & metric units
- Works with many popular flow meters
- Each rod is custom configured to break down into 2 pieces
The Breakdown Top Setting Wading Rod is designed for hydrologists who need to travel by air, prefer a top set rod to a standard wading rod or need a top set rod in a convenient carrying or shipping length. The hex rod and round rod breakdown with the round rod screwing apart and the hex rod has a special sliding set screw connection. Each rod is custom configured as to length of each section depending upon requirements.
- (1) Breakdown top setting wading rod
- (1) Threaded base plate with lock washer

With over 300 endangered mussel species in the United States, environmental agencies like EnviroScience rise to the challenge of protecting these vital species. When new construction sites are determined, the Endangered Species Act steps in to protect any endangered wildlife within the impacted area. Unfortunately, the protocols surrounding these protections can be complex and difficult to understand, making the work of scientists like Greg Zimmerman, Corporate Vice President for EnviroScience and an endangered mussel surveyor, vital to protecting biodiversity.Read More

Though few people pay any mind to the occasional “clam” shell spotted along a river bank or lake, these small but mighty creatures are deeply important to water systems across the United States, and many of them are federally and state endangered. Greg Zimmerman of EnviroScience, Inc. shares, “We have about 300 species of mussels in the U.S., compared to other regions of the world like Europe that have under 20 species.”
Zimmerman spent his life around water and always knew he wanted to return to help protect aquatic ecosystems. “I’ve always had a love of water, since I was 2. I grew up on an island in Buckeye Lake in Ohio.Read More
Some of the most interesting data in the world of river and stream monitoring come at times when it's practically impossible to capture—during extreme weather events, for example. Timing alone makes capturing unusual events a challenge, and these kinds of issues have prompted researchers to use classic monitoring data along with new technologies to develop and improve hydraulic modeling for estimating river flows.
Steven Lyon , a Conservation Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, Professor at Stockholm University and Associate Professor at The Ohio State University, spoke with EM about the research .Read More
