We have a lot of water diversions here in CO, where should a monitoring station be positioned? Above the diversion, below the diversion? both?
Paul.Krahn
21:14
Does all the data get stored in one location?
DENNIS COOK
23:00
How vulnerable is the equipment to vandalism?
Gary Fonay
25:59
If no cell coverage. Can data be downloaded to chip and retrieved periodically? Then sent to data base.
Thomas Giannaccini Jr
26:26
is the Water Quality Monitor Station sign available from TU ?
Matt.Barney
27:18
We've not had a lot of vandalism, but it's certainly something to consider when siting your station. The only time we've had trouble is when installed in a high-traffic public location. Finding a private landowner willing to let you install on their property is a great option.
Matt.Barney
28:06
Gary: Yes, if no cell coverage is available, data are logged on the memory card and can be manually retrieved and uploaded.
Gary Fonay
28:33
Thank you

Unit Conversion Stroud wanted it in Metric for Monitor my Watershed, can we discuss
Matt.Barney
35:08
Tom: We are planning to provide a template for the sign that you can customize and install on your station.Regarding units conversion, please email Jake and me; it gets a bit technical, but is quite doable.
Ryan Hogan

Is the site location data obscured to anyone? I am wondering if people could figure out exactly where a sensor is based on the data it provides publically
DENNIS COOK
45:19
Do all stations include all sensors, or only function-specific sensors at each?
DENNIS COOK
46:06
Is installation site elevation any consideration?
Matt.Barney
47:23
Hi Dennis, Station owners can choose from a variety of sensors, so it's dependent on what your monitoring goals are.
Matt.Barney
49:28
Hi Ryan: The site location coordinates are displayed on the website. However, you could "fudge" it on the website by entering obscured (slightly incorrect) coordinates.
Ryan Hogan
50:12
Can they be powered by micro-hydro instead?
Matt.Barney
53:00
Dennis, regarding elevation, if you're asking about elevation above sea level, no that's not important. Of course, siting the waterproof logger box far enough from the stream channel that it doesn't get flooded/washed away is important.
DENNIS COOK
54:02
"Thanks Matt" That was my interest.
Phil Wright
59:30
Can you send out your written protocol after the webinar?
Ryan Hogan
01:01:39
We have used steel cable to secure our wireless sensors, do you ever use stell cables in tandem with the sensor cable?
Matt.Barney
01:06:25

DENNIS COOK
01:17:47
TYPICALLY...how much labor time is required monthly, and who performs this task to ensure data quality does not degrade?
Phil Wright
01:17:49
How often do you visit sensor? Why?
DENNIS COOK
01:23:41
Have most installations been at significant volume size streams/rivers?
DENNIS COOK
01:24:35
Have any been installed in headwaters streams in mountain sites?
Matt.Barney
01:38:50
Dennis: Quite a few of our stations are installed in smaller streams. Regarding small mountainous headwater streams, the best example I can think of would be Leonard Creek in Oregon. Type "leonard" into the Search box on monitormywatershed.org to get a feel for the landscape
Matt.Barney
01:39:11
Obviously steep, deep canyons can make cellular coverage difficult or impossible
DENNIS COOK
01:42:15
Have many TU chapters found that non/low tech member volunteers may be very difficult to recruit?
Ryan Hogan
01:43:45
How do you have to collect data if there is no cell coverage
Ryan Hogan
01:44:07
often
Paul Wehr
01:51:54
Thanks for this presentation. It’s been great! I know I’ll be checking sites that I’m interested in visiting. In our area, the issue for areas our chapter would be interested in, would be cell service for live recording. Otherwise…great stuff.
Maria Pezza, Watershed Center
01:54:05
Thank you so much for this - it has been extremely helpful!
Zoe Vanderbrug
01:54:12
Thank you!
John Martyn
01:54:16
Installing a station, is this something that needs to be approved by local government and DNR ?
Gary Fonay
01:54:30
Thank you. Great information.
Ryan Hogan
01:54:37
thank you!
Thomas Giannaccini Jr

Thanks this was fantastic
