Dredging done correctly doesn't hurt water quality, and can yield positive environmental results. However, ensuring these good results demands monitoring for contaminant release, sediment resuspension, and other water quality issues.
Dredge operations don't need to be destructive or harm the environment around them. With the help of careful monitoring and the real-time data it provides, dredge operators can operate their equipment with confidence and monitor their projects with precision.
Offshore buoy monitoring systems, the advanced instruments they carry, and the data they provide are used in a broad range of applications. Some of these include scientific research, marine and weather forecasting and more.
Lake Erie plays such an iconic role in American culture, and it is critical to the local ecosystem. For these reasons, Lake Erie buoys have a host of unique challenges to meet as they help researchers and managers acquire the data they need.
The seemingly simple question of, “how do I get my data?” can be complicated to answer, so we explore why wireless water quality monitoring options are so important to users, what today’s monitoring options look like, and the solutions the technology presents for users.
