New sensors provide real-time data

Partners in the project are celebrating the installation of new "real-time" water quality monitors in the Indian River Lagoon.

Fifteen sensors will collect immediate data on the water quality; then experts can use that information to identify the best restoration projects for the lagoon system.
We've all heard a lot about the lagoon; perhaps you didn't know this shallow-water estuary stretches from the Daytona Beach area in Volusia County, to the southern end of Martin County.

In recent years it's lost 60 per cent of its seagrasses which may or may not be linked to a series of algae blooms.
