A History of Innovation

With a focus on simplicity, innovation and efficient solutions, Stevens Water are experts in hydrological and environmental monitoring.

We’ve been innovating water monitoring solutions since 1911.

  • First remote, unattended water level monitoring instrument—the standard for today’s water level measurements
  • First with a water resource data book used by many professionals and universities (6th edition)
  • First with a telemetry instrument for water level monitoring (“Telemark”)
  • First to develop a standard of visual water level measurement using staff gages, now today’s public domain (and USGS) standard Style A, B, C, E and M gages.
  • First to transmit environmental monitoring data over the ORBCOMM LEO system
  • First to develop a Bluetooth product targeted at the Environmental Monitoring market’s demands
  • First data logger for the environmental monitoring market with more than 1GB memory

 

Water Monitoring Expertise for Over 100 Years

1911

JC Stevens invents the Type A chart recorder, the first continuous stage recording device. This original design is the basis for today’s Type A and Type F recorders.

The optics side of the company and the water monitoring side of the company are separated from each other, with Stevens becoming “Stevens Water Monitoring Systems, Inc.”, a privately-held company with its primary focus on monitoring water in the environment.
