Low-Cost Monitoring of Stormwater Control Measures Using Water Level Loggers

Stormwater control measures (SCMs) are used to increase infiltration and reduce discharge to streams or storm sewer systems during rain events, making them an increasingly important component of urban hydrology.

This free one-hour webinar, hosted by Onset and presented by Dr. Laura Toran of Temple University, will explain why water level loggers are a useful, low-cost monitoring tool for evaluating performance and examining causes of failure in SCMs.

You will learn that:

  • Water level loggers can answer targeted questions about stormwater with less expense than a full water budget for a site
  • Water level data can reveal whether overflow is occurring and can be deployed long term to look for changes in performance
  • Field checks should be made regularly to see if field conditions have changed and to download data
  • Regular data analysis is important to explore findings and make sure time-stamps are correct 

Dr. Toran will present several case studies that use water level loggers to evaluate overflow of basins, compare a traditional storm-pipe trench with an infiltration trench, monitor timing of blue roof storage, show the effects of retrofitting a basin, and provide long-term performance data.
