“ This Water Monitoring system provides supportive research and education to establish an accurate understanding of the state’s water resources the implications for increased demand for water.”
Project: Goals and Objectives
The overarching goal of this proposal is to provide accurate real-time essential and hydrological data to understand the state’s water resources to better manage thereby optimizing water resource allocation. It is apparent that the need
The proposal is an integrated research and extension addressing the “Water Monitoring” priority area of the program supporting water resource research, management and technology.
To develop the next generation of Wireless Monitoring System (
To evaluate the performance of NXTGenW in terms of real-time data integrity and
Prepare to implement an aggressive outreach training and educational program to facilitate the adoption of the new system (NXTGenW) for wireless monitoring of essential hydrological information.

One of the most critical global challenges will be increasing the food and fiber production with less water. While the world’s population increases, the use of renewable water resources has grown tremendously. Water is the most consume world resources and has a lot of impact on the country’s economy. It is
Abundant surface and groundwater are essential to the success of South Carolina’s $42 billion agriculture and natural resources economy. The increase of extreme weather events over the past ten years has raised concerns about the current level of understanding regarding South Carolina’s water resources. As South Carolina began a concerted effort to develop a comprehensive water plan, government agencies and
It is apparent that the need

The NXTGenW will provide real-time data visualization to essential environmental information which can be use in managing water resources. It is anticipated that any technological advances would be woven into the Intelligent River enterprise.
The long-term goal of this proposal is to utilize the Sensor & Automation Lab (SAL) core competency in developing automated system and sensors, to demonstrate the next generation of wireless monitoring system which can be easily expanded to cover large area of water in South Carolina.
