Wise Roads Project Phase 1 Complete

June 28, 2019
Weather Stations Immediately Put to the Test

Wise Roads - First 10 Installation of the first 10 weather stations in WDEA's Wise Roads project was completed the week of June 24, and all 10 sites received a shot of rain on June 28 to put them to the test.

Wise Roads (Weather Information System to Effectively Reduce Oilfield Delays and Disruption) is being developed in partnership with the North Dakota Ag Weather Network (NDAWN) at NDSU. Brent Bogar, a WDEA consultant, was in the field this week with the NDAWN crew installing the research-grade weather stations.
