LimnoTech Monroe Buoy



As part of a special study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers this buoy is providing real-time data to inform a rigorous study of the impact of open lake disposal of dredged material from the Toledo Harbor Navigation Channel on water quality in the western basin of Lake Erie.

Station 45165 has been retrieved for the season. Please email Ed Verhamme if you would like to see it return in 2014. We are working on finding additional sources of funding to deploy it next year.
