This is a draft page. (briefly define turbidity here)

Add background info:

  • Info about regulations
  • Info about ecological or human health impacts
  • Advocacy leverage points
  • Constraints we're working within: cost, complexity, sensitivity, time

There are a LOT of resources available on these pages by @donblair and others:

Turbidity sensors

Here's a list of different turbidity sensors and measurement systems. See below for some Do-It-Yourself approaches to measuring turbidity, and this page for more information on how turbidity sensors works.

(see Water sensors for more, and click here to add to this table)


Activities

Activities for people to test methods (these develop over time)


Activities should include a materials list, costs and a step-by-step guide to construction with photos. Learn what makes a good activity here.
