The stability and accuracy of current off-the-shelf water quality sensors are evaluated. Biological fouling was deemed one of the most serious problems in nullifying sensor capability. Methods to reduce biofouling were evaluated. Of the potential measures to eliminate biofouling, the focal 'kill-zone' approach appears to be most feasible and the simplest to implement.
