Section 7. Abstract


“The Neighborhood Environmental Watch Network (NEWNET) is a regional network of environmental monitoring stations and a data archival center that support collaboration between communities, industry and government agencies to solve environmental problems. The stations provide local displays of measurements for the public and transmit measurements via satellite to a central site for archiving and analysis. Station managers are selected from the local communities and trained to support the stations. Archived data and analysis tools are available, through a communications network, to researchers, educational institutions, industrial collaborators and the public across the nation. Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Environmental Protection Agency have developed a NEWNET pilot program for the Department of Energy. The pilot program supports monitoring stations in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming and California. Additional stations are being placed in Colorado and New Mexico. Pilot stations take radiological and meteorological measurements. Other measurements are possible by changing sensors.” (1) The sensors will provide Monitoring in remote or other areas of interest. In some cases the baseline data acquired will be compared to the periodic or continuous data collected to provide greater assurance that funded projects are improving the spawning habitat by measurable lowering of water temperature improved water quality. ____________________ 1. “Neighborhood Environmental Watch Network” Author: Larry Sanders Program Mgr.
