Focused on the monitoring and reporting of sediment loads propagating within sensitive streams and native watersheds, McGinley & Associates, Inc. has installed multiple LISST-AOBS sensors to collect data and alert operators to environmental changes.  The sensor uniquely pairs both acoustic and optical technologies to enable the accurate output of suspended sediment concentration data.  Located in a remote interior of Nevada, the installations have required standalone power and telemetry stations to be constructed and maintained. These standalone power and telemetry stations were packaged with our LISST-AOBS and purchased through Fondriest Environmental Products. Learn more about applications of the LISST-AOBS by checking out this video, or visit its product page here.
