Scientist from MERI have been taking advantage of the good weather to do maintenance work on its water quality monitoring network. Three stations located strategically near Kearny, at Saw Mill Creek and at the Barge Marina along the lower Hackensack river continuously measure water quality parameters. Hourly measurements of dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, turbidity, salinity and water elevation are relayed via cell phone and posted on MERI’s web site under environmental monitoring in almost real time. The network has been monitoring water quality since 2004. All past and current measurements are available under environmental monitoring in MERI’s web page www.meri.njmeadowlands.gov.
