EnviroDIY Sensors Track Road Salt Levels in Streams

EnviroDIY Sensors Track Road Salt Levels in Streams

During 2017, Stroud Water Research Center provided over 30 EnviroDIY sensor stations to watershed groups working in the Delaware River Basin to support monitoring, education, and outreach. EnviroDIY is part of the Stroud Center’s WikiWatershed web toolkit.

The sensor stations, equipped with conductivity, temperature, and depth sensors, as well as turbidity sensors, were deployed by the Stroud Center as part of the William Penn Foundation’s Delaware River Watershed Initiative and through an Environmental Protection Agency national model environmental education grant called “Greening STEM Technologies.” The Stroud Center is also providing workshops, guidance materials, and one-on-one assistance to watershed groups in managing the stations and data that are produced.

The foundation of the sensor stations is the Mayfly Data Logger board, which logs all data produced by the sensors and transmits it via cellular networks to a website where the data are automatically graphed and can be downloaded for further analysis.
