Small Scale Lake Planning
A real-time monitoring station was installed to provide water level and temperature data for Crystal lake. Previously, water levels were recorded by manual measurement and occurred at approximately a monthly time step. Past data is not real time, required manual work, and measurements are sporadic throughout the year. This project solves those issues and provides continuous data through the year.
Dane County is sponsoring a project to install a water level monitoring station on Crystal Lake, Dane County. This will provide useful data for lake water budgets to assist with management of the pump located on this lake.
Project final deliverables include: The station will be installed, and graphs of real-time data will be available for viewing by the public online. In addition, a report and website link for the data will be provided to DNR as a deliverable.
