StormReactor Water Quality Toolbox
There is a need to accurately model pollutant transformations and real-time control actions at the site and watershed scale. To that end, I built an open-source Python package, StormReactor, which couples the Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) with a new Python water quality module. StormReactor includes a variety of predefined pollutant generation and treatment processes, while allowing users to implement more complex processes on their own.
Water Quality Sampling Nodes
Collaborating with the Huron River Watershed Council on a surface water quality monitoring project. I developed a small, low-cost, data node to collect real-time data, make automated decisions, and allow for remote triggering of the samplers. The node sends data to a dashboard allowing a team to monitor the depth of water in the stream/creek, along with sampler information. In manual mode, the team can simply tap a “trigger” button on the dashboard to order a sample.
Rain Garden Nodes
Collaborating with the Detroit Sierra Club on a rain garden monitoring project. I developed a small, low-cost, data node to collect real-time data on soil moisture conditions and infiltration rates.
