ISCO Storm Water Monitoring System Installation
Stormwater runoff is a major contributor to surface water pollution, perpetuating ever-increasing state and federal demands for stormwater runoff control and reporting. A wide range of flexible instrumentation enables Teledyne Isco to meet non-point source discharge monitoring requirements.
Regulating Stormwater Discharge
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Program regulates stormwater discharges from potential sources that include both point and non-point sources. Operators and managers of storm sewer systems, construction sites, croplands, industrial sectors, and urban areas may be required to obtain authorization to discharge stormwater, in accordance with both federal law, and often more stringent state and local regulations.
Businesses, municipalities, and other organizations must develop comprehensive stormwater monitoring programs. These programs typically consist of several parts, including the collection and storage of storm event data on rainfall, flow, and measured pollutant levels, as well as taking water samples during the storm event for laboratory analysis. Representative sample collection is dependent upon crucial factors such as timing, flow volume, and water quality.
Rapidly changing storm conditions can present several challenges to accurate sample collection, monitoring of system status, program adjustment needs, and data retrieval. With instrumentation from Teledyne Isco, a site-specific system can provide precise automatic sampling with real-time data collection and flexible programming.
All of this and more can be achieved from remote locations.
