The availability of relatively inexpensive electronic sensors for measuring water quality parameters and the availability of data loggers with low power requirements enable water-related data to be collected from remote sites at a reasonable cost. We present information about a system installed on a stream that collects information about water conductivity, pH, temperature, water stage, and air temperature. Information about sensor installation and calibration procedures, system maintenance tips, and samples of several data output formats are also presented.
