New Weather Station at Cincinnati State

The College in partnership with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and MSD (Metropolitan Sewer District) installed a weather station at the Clifton campus to provide data for their rain water runoff experiments.  Wayne Herbers and Paul Weingartner worked to make the weather station data available.  The weather data is for our community use.

View data from the weather station here.  Archival data going back to April 2015 is also available online.


Background

The College partnered with EPA and MSD several years ago to develop a plan to minimize rain water run-off.  In our area, rain water surface runoff is combined into the sanitary sewers which must be treated by MSD prior to being discharged into the river.  Part of the project, involved research on the rate of ground absorption and surface runoff,  with the goal of developing a useful model which could be applied in the design of future systems around the country.  Numerous sensors were buried in our parking lots and landscaping.  Water is collected from multiple drains which feed underground storage tanks around the campus.  The formal part of the project by MSD and EPA has been completed.  Ann Gunkel, the chair of the Environmental Engineering Technology, Water and Wastewater major, has also been involved with the project.  The data is still being monitored by various agencies including the USGS (United States Geological Survey)
