Continuous monitoring of water quality at Deep Creek Lake is a vital project. Without more sensors, information received will be limited. The sensors will allow for a baseline to be established that will indicate if there are changes in water quality in the future. The ability to place a sensor in each cove, or at a minimum several coves, will allow for a complete picture of water quality in all areas of the watershed and lake.
