FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Lee County leaders have signed off on a joint funding agreement with the U.S. Geological Survey for collection of water quality and flow data at 12 waterways.
The county will contribute just under $140,000 for the program, which will begin October 1st.
The program includes reading of continuous stage recorders and groundwater levels in several Lee County watersheds including:
-Six Mile Cypress Creek
-Ten Mile Canal
The data collected helps with several things, like the Lee County Surface Water Management Master Plan, and information for floods and storm response.
