The fractional water-sediment sampler enables collecting
large-volume representative samples of water and sediment from
surface drainage streams. Free fall-flow, such as obtained at
drop structures, is required for the operation of the sampler.
The total sediment-laden water flow sampled can be split to
50 or 25% of the original sampled Row before being directed
to containers by adding one or two splitting stages.
