World Water Day 2018

World Water Day 2018

Event, Water Quality
#WorldWaterDay March 22, 2018 marks the 25th celebration of World Water Day! This year’s theme is “Nature for Water - exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.” They are asking us to think about how we can reduce floods, droughts and water pollution. And their answer is simple, by using the solutions we already find in nature (nature -based solutions NBS) The main goal of this campaign is to raise awareness of NBS. "The central message is that NBS, such as planting trees to replenish forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands, is a sustainable and cost-effective way to help rebalance the water cycle, mitigate the effects of climate change and improve human health and livelihoods.” We can all make small contributions that…

This Pi Day Wear Purple for #DressForSTEM!

Blog
 #DressForSTEM March 14th may seem like just any other day, but for many it has become National PI (π) Day. It has grown into a day to celebrate mathematics specifically the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter which is approximately 3.14159. We often don’t realize it, but PI is being used around us every day. When we use our GPS for directions it uses PI to calculate locations. NASA scientists and also engineers use it to study the various characters of planets. Those in aviation use it to calculate flight time, how much fuel they will need on their trip, and to design airplanes. Many who celebrate eat different kinds of pies, some pizza restaurants join in the festivities with deals of $3.14 for their pizza pies. But…

Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

Blog
To develop the most efficient data measurement, collection and relay system, it is important to consider your requirements before selecting one. To start, assess how remote your monitoring stations are…it is an urban network or a network having remote stations in mountainous or desert regions.  For perspective, think about if your cell phone has signal or not. Also, consider if your network is mixed; where some stations are urban, and others are remote. Next, assess what the data will be used for and how critical the data is. For example, will the transmitted data be used for flood forecasting, emergency management and response, or long-term trends and analysis. It is also an imperative to consider who will consume the environmental data you collect. Will it be just your organization or…

  VINCI Facilities in the UK, manages around 37,000 assets in the Royal Parks (such as fountains, statues and royal memorials for example in Kensington Gardens) and the water features are fed by the Longford River. If you have ever travelled in west London, there is every likelihood that you have crossed the Longford River – probably without realizing it. Built for King Charles I in 1638/39, the river travels from near Heathrow airport to feed the water features in Bushey Park and Hampton Court Palace. Maintenance and ongoing management of the Longford river are required as it helps protect industrial and residential areas, which the river passes through, from flooding and helps preserve the ecological status of the river. Checking the status of the Longford River used to be…
