City Partners with Hood College to Monitor Stream Temperatures

To support Frederick’s environment and ecosystem, The City of Frederick has partnered again with Hood College Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies to monitor temperatures in our local streams. Loggers, the devices used to monitor the temperature, have been deployed at various restoration sites throughout the City and are both in the water and on land (to monitor air temperatures in those areas). Air loggers are small silver boxes mounted in trees or on poles in the monitoring areas.

Water temperature influences most physical and biological processes in streams and, along with streamflow, is a major driver of ecosystem processes. Stream temperature data is being collected at all existing and planned stream restoration sites to track water quality improvements. Questions regarding this partnership can be directed to Sustainability Manager, Jenny Willoughby, at jwilloughby@cityoffrederickmd.gov.
