YSI Info

The STORM water monitoring programme was developed to enable real time recording of river characteristics. The equipment is currently deployed in 3 rivers within the Foyle Catchment River Roe, River Finn and River Mourne. Information is sent back continuously which can be accessed by Loughs Agency personnel or the public.

Characteristics recorded include; temperature, depth, pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. These are not only applicable for pollution monitoring and research but are also beneficial for recreational activities such as canoeing, rafting or fishing as a method of checking the real-time conditions.

Equipment deployed at the sites is calibrated on a routine basis during which data may not be available. However, this will help to reduce erroneous data due to fouling by algae or other organisms present in the river.
