Sample readings and search tips

Another challenge you will have to address is monitoring the water level in the catchment to alert the population of low water levels allowing for rationing of resources before the school runs out of water unexpectedly. As you explore this topic you may need to veer away from water tracking to tracking different chemicals or other substances that would warrant and alert to unacceptable levels. You may be able to use the concepts of that technology and relate them to your problem and then solution. 

As you search try to think about various words that you might use to explore a topic. Some sample key words you might try are:

  • Water monitoring
  • Water conservation
  • Rainfall
  • Water metering
  • Measurement
  • Basin OR Catchment OR Tank etc.
