University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee water researchers recently setup monitoring buoys on Lake Winnebago to understand where and how toxic algae blooms occur in freshwater lakes.
Lake Winnebago is the largest inland lake in Wisconsin and provides drinking water to the adjacent cities. Ingestion of some toxic algae can be dangerous, even fatal.
The buoys are a brilliant in-house design that measure characteristics of the water, air, temperature and algae levels in the lake.
