The RSC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization able to accept donations for research and equipment support.
Donate for Research!
The RSC leads the research on developing more rapid techniques to determine bacterial concentrations in the swimming waters of Presque Isle State Park.
Donate for the Buoy!
The RSC is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Lake Erie Nearshore Buoy. This weather, water, wave buoy system measures parameters in real-time and posts the data to www.PALakeErieBuoy.com.
The implementation of this project was through a grant from the Great Lakes Observing System and in collaboration with the National Weather Service. Additional support for the equipment and promotion of the buoy was provided through a grant from Boat U.S.
Future operation of this system requires community support through public donations from organizations and individuals.
Be a Safe Boater, Buoy Before You Boat!
