About Project SeNTRY

Sensing ENvironmental parameters Through TelemeTRY (SENTRY) innovates the water quality monitoring and assessment of concerned advisory agencies through the deployment of devices that automates data acquisition of relevant water quality-related parameters developed by DOST. Data are transmitted to a data processing system that makes those results available over the internet. Among the parameters being gather are pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. SENTRY also has a feature that warns concerned agencies whenever the system detects that a data is nearing its critical value. Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment (WQMA) bulletins and advisories from DENR-EMB IV-A and DA-BFAR IV-A can also be disseminated by system to LGUs, fish cage owners and other stakeholders.
