Greater Columbus Convention Center | 400 N. High St., Columbus, Ohio 43215

OAWWA and OWEA join forces to bring you the 2018 One Water Technical Conference & Expo - where we will share our smart technology expertise expanding water quality monitoring capabilities.

The Ohio Water Environment Association and the Ohio Section of the American Water Works Association collaborate to share new technologies and innovative solutions with Ohio’s water experts.

Emphasis is on state-of-the-art solutions for resolving water quantity and quality problems in stormwater, wastewater, watershed and water distribution systems.

You also have the opportunity to hear from our renowned water engineering experts who share industry-leading nutrient monitoring expertise insight:


2:40 – 3:10 p.m.

Real-time Nutrient Monitoring System and Data Analysis Platform Offers New Insight to Stream Dynamics

Karlin Danilsen, Ph.D., and Nathan Zgnilec, engineers in our Environmental Water Resources Group, will share lessons learned from winning the 2017 Internet of H2O Challenge, a competition aimed at solving the challenge of monitoring Lake Erie’s phosphorus levels, which contribute to the overgrowth of harmful algal blooms (HABs) and pose a significant threat to water quality.

The win resulted in the innovative development of an affordable, autonomous, real-time nutrient analysis system to monitor soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), and Nitrate and Nitrite. Nathan and Karlin will share the many applications this robust system offers – integrating new insight into stream dynamics and the performance of best management practices.
