Abstract

Since 2014 the number of real-time sensors on Lake Erie has increased from zero (2014) to nearly 20 (2021). This ad-hoc sensor network provides year round observations of basic lake conditions near water intakes and provides actionable data to optimize raw water treatment for removal of algal toxins. In 2022, in collaboration with the Cleveland Water Alliance, LimnoTech is deploying more sensors closer to shore and plans to develop a robust testbed program that allows new technology to be tested at water intakes. Despite imperfect sensors, data from this network has correlated very well with algal toxin concentrations and has proven to be a highly valuable early warning network. The presentation will focus on the past, present, and future of this network.
