Abstract
  • A survey of federal and state agencies was conducted to determine the future need for water-quality data. This survey was used as the basis for constructing a water-quality data aquisition system applicable to any river basin. This study outlines the major components of an automatic water-quality monitoring system. Seventy-one sites in the Willamette River basin of Oregon were selected as monitoring sites for a model monitoring system. VHF radio and telephone telemetry systems were designed to service the model monitoring system. Economic models of the telemetry systems were constructed and compared. The results of this study show that: 1. Enough interest in water-quality monitoring exists to justify the construction of an automated monitoring system. 2. The model monitoring system developed in this study may be adapted to any river basin. 3. A combination of VHF radio and telephone will require the lowest operating cost per year.
