Xylem water quantity and quality experts will be conducting a one-day educational workshop, Thursday, March 2, at the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.This will be a full day of information relevant to water monitoring in coastal, estuarine and inland environments. Whether interested in collecting continuous water quality data with the EXO and 6-Series Sondes, or you need discharge data with instruments such as the multi-frequency RiverSurveyor-M9, this will have something for everyone!

We will also have a section on hydrographic (bathymetric) surveying and the introduction of HYPACK software into the Xylem aresnal of products!

BONUS: Bring in your YSI gear for a FREE, on-site evaluation by members of our technical support team!

But wait - there's MORE! Five lucky participants will walk away with Yeti tumblers and everyone will receive a bit of YSI and SonTek swag!
