LISST-Portable used by USGS in stormwater research
[Sequoia, May16, 2012]
Sequoia’s LISST-Portable is used for stomwater research by Bill Selbig with the USGS Water Science Center in Wisconsin.
He is featured in an article in the June 2012 issue of Stormwater – the journal for surface water quality professionals, which focuses on tools and techniques for monitoring water quality.
Selbig has invented a new type of sampler for sampling suspended sediments in stormwater drains and the samples are being analysed for particle size using a LISST-Portable – some times even on site without the need for taking the sample to the lab. Says Selbig: “[The LISST-Portable] was really handy, and we’re very pleased with the product… [Sequoia] has been very helpful whenever we would have some complications or technical problems… It’s a very small unit. It allows us to take it from one site to the next and get nearly instantaneous results.”
