Water leaders tour CU’s “Intelligent River”

May 16, 2013

Water chiefs from Washington and Columbia came to Clemson University today to look at technologies for monitoring and protecting clean water. Nancy Stoner of the Environmental Protection Agency and Catherine Templeton of South Carolina DHEC toured campus components of Clemson’s Intelligent River research. The project uses small, data-gathering sensors linked to a computer network that can send environmental conditions in easy-to-understand formats to virtually anyone with a computer or smart phone. The Clemson Intelligent River technology has the potential to help DHEC track pollution and flow. “Water is this state’s most precious resource,” said Templeton. “Without it the health of our citizens suffers, the quality of our environment falters, and the prospects for economic development dry up.”
