Water quality sampling throughout many watersheds is performed in a variety of methods, and often is not continuous. Data currently collected represents point sampling, which does not allow for complete monitoring. Even data that has been collected at 15-minute intervals is typically collected over short time periods or in a limited number of locations, yielding small data sets. By sampling at 15-minute intervals on a 24/7 basis we expect to be able to capture the impact of fleeting events, such as rain deluges or moving turbidity plumes, and define effects of cyclical variations.
