Current available sensors cost around 10,000-100,000EUR. Monitoring turbidity in a river can give you information on the total suspended sediment in the water, but why else is this parameter important?

But I’m going to figure out how to make a sensor, so why not document it? My hope is to 1) create valuable content and 2) show others that I actually have no idea what I’m doing. But if I can figure it out then so can you!
