Hide details for Project Title & DescriptionProject Title & Description

Presque Isle Beaches-Bacterial Forecasting Model
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will produce a model that will predict E. coli levels in advance of traditional methods. The predicted levels will be compared to actual results to test the efficacy of the model. Each beach is unique and requires collection and evaluation of physical and chemical parameters, as well as a variety of other parameters (e.g., human & wildlife activity, water currents, etc.) in order to construct an effective model. Results will be available to Presque Isle State Park beach managers through a website.
