Coastal Connection event highlights water monitoring project
Dolphin Project event

EDITOR'S NOTE: This event has been postponed due to coronavirus restrictions.

Those concerned with the increased flooding on our coast and waterways are invited to a “Coastal Connection” co-hosted by The Dolphin Project and Coastal Electric Cooperative, Saturday, April 4, at 7 p.m. at The Richmond Hill City Center, 520 Cedar St.

Russ Clark, PhD, Senior Research Scientist & Director of Mobile Technology & IOT Programs at Georgia Tech - Savannah, and his team have developed and been strategically installing Sea Level Sensors throughout Bryan and Chatham counties.

Dr. Clark will present testing results on the “Smart Sea Level Sensor Project”. 

According to a press release, the goal is “making information available to first-responders and government officials in our communities before storm surges and potential flooding. The sensors collect multiple data points, including water level, temperature, pollen count, carbon monoxide levels and more that can be used by local industry to encourage precision agriculture to produce optimal growing conditions or as a resource for managing wildlife in national preserves.”

Dr. Clark and his family live on the Kilkenny River, and the project is near and dear to him.

The program is free of charge and open to the public.

Refreshments will be served, and a cash bar is available.
