The first of the Stroud Water Research Center Mayfly Data Loggers was installed in Valley Creek on September 26, 2019 .
The installation team from Stroud included David Bressler, Shannon Hicks and Rachel Johnson and what a job they did. By the end of the 3 hours of work effort the entire system was installed, validated and operational.
All the information is updated every 5 minutes which includes water depth, temperature, electrical conductivity and turbidity. Amazing! But, of course, something so sophisticated will need periodic and on-going maintenance which is VFTU’s responsibility.
Check out the site and see what is happening NOW in Valley Creek! And a big thanks to Al Renzi who worked hard over the past several months to make this happen.
