This paper presents an environmental monitoring and early warning system (EWS) for use in the Grand River Watershed. The design consists of two major sub-systems. The first is a sensor system that houses seven sensors and two sampling ports. The second system houses a wireless data logger, reeling system and batteries.

Created in fulfillment of the course requirements for ENGG*3100 Engineering and Design III. This course combines the knowledge gained in the advanced engineering and basic science courses with the design skills taught in ENGG*1100 and ENGG*2100 in solving open-ended problems. These problems are related to the student's major. Additional design tools are presented, including model simulation, sensitivity analysis, linear programming, knowledge-based systems and computer programming. Complementing these tools are discussions on writing and public speaking techniques, codes, safety issues, environmental assessment and professional management. These topics are taught with the consideration of available resources and cost.
