About This Project
Citizen science effort to monitor water quality flowing from Little River and Biscayne Canals into Biscayne Bay
Current monitoring of the waters feeding Biscayne Bay are insufficient. There are 20+ basins that flow into the bay which are being monitored monthly for nitrogen and phosphorus which cause persistent algal blooms. Two basins effecting seagrass loss will be targeted in this project, Little River and the Biscayne Canal. The goal is to expand the sensing network in an effort to help drive research, local decision making, and community action. All data will become open source.
