Remote Water Quality Monitoring Project

A photo of a remote water quality station.

Two remote water quality stations were installed on the East and West Forks of the Jarbidge River in Nevada during October 2002. The Jarbidge River is important because of its population of bull trout, a threatened species in some areas of the West. The stations are now transmitting data through the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite. The East Fork station is a mile from the nearest road, just outside of a wilderness area. The two monitoring stations were manufactured by Forest Technology Systems, Inc. Both stations will transmit current air temperature, solar radiation, specific conductivity, conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, and cell and battery voltages.
