Stevens Water Monitoring Systems, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of integrated hydrological, meteorological and oceanographic monitoring instrumentation, accessories and information systems that help optimize water resource management and enhance forecasting. We start by fully understanding our customers’ goals and requirements. Then we design a system (whether simple or complex), consisting of sensors, data logging and process control instruments, communication equipment and necessary software for data presentation. Our objective is finding the shortest path between environmental conditions and your understanding of those environmental conditions to efficiently execute the best decisions.

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 (now in its 6th edition)
FIRST with a telemetry instrument for water level monitoring (“Telemark”)
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
The Telemark, the first remote water level reporting device, was introduced by JC Stevens. The product was patented two years later in 1939.
The company was renamed “Leupold and Stevens Instrument Company” after the death of founder Adam Volpel and to better reflect the company’s current focus.
Leupold and Stevens Instruments designs and sells their first hunting sight, setting the future for the “Leupold” side of the business to focus on sport optics while “Stevens” continues to pioneer the water measurement business.
The continued growth of Leupold and Stevens Instruments is cause for a move to new, larger manufacturing facilities in Beaverton, Oregon. The new 66,000 square feet headquarters was built to handle 20 years of expansion—instead, the space was used up within four short years, necessitating further expansion.
Stevens moves to its new corporate headquarters in Portland, Oregon near Portland International Airport, affording more room to grow as the company expands its business.
Stevens Water Monitoring Systems celebrates its 100 year anniversary of monitoring the Earth’s environmental resources.
Signalling the beginning of a new chapter of innovative product development, Stevens completely re-brands the company. Our new tagline “Measurements to Mind” shows how invested we are in the concept of cloud computing—we believe there will be a fundamental shift in how the industry collects data, and we intend to lead the charge.
