Notes

Abstract: This research uses a wireless sensor network (WSN) using Zigbee protocol to remotely monitor water levels, pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), and temperature in an artificial aquatic system. Along with being able to monitor these factors, we are using a control system to help maintain a suitable water level, and other water quality factors, necessary to a healthy stream system. Field tests were conducted at University of North Texas Water Research Field Station using water tanks to simulate a model stream. Measurements were recorded every 10 seconds for water level, pH, DO, and temperature over a period of 24 hours. If the variables changed to an unsuitable level then valves were opened to either fill, drain or flush the tanks.
