Posted by: admin February 27, 2014

GLOS is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the purchase and deployment of one (1) buoy 14 miles north of Cleveland OH during the 2014 and 2015 field seasons. The purpose of this buoy will be to inform Lake Erie water intake managers regarding the state of central basin hypolimnetic and hypoxic conditions. The Lake Erie Information System (LEIS) is intended to combine observed data, forecasted surface currents, and satellite imagery to provide Lake Erie central basin drinking water managers information about the transport of hypoxic water into water intakes impacting drinking water quality. This funding opportunity is made possible through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) Synthesis, Observations and Response (SOAR) project. The goal of the SOAR project is to confront problems such as central basin hypoxia through the development and implementation of innovative solutions that are integrated across projects, disciplines, and scales.
