The City has partnered with researchers at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) to install multiple lagoon level and weather stations throughout the City.
- These stations will provide real-time data that are easily accessible to residents, researchers, and City staff.
- The data generated by the stations will provide invaluable information that will help City staff make management decisions related to flooding and water quality issues.
- It will also help researchers obtain a better understanding of the dynamic nature of the Banana River Lagoon and our local weather.
On December 12th, FAU staff installed the first station at McNabb Park. The station immediately began transmitting data to an online platform available to the public. The data can be found here: https://www.sensestream.org/measurements.
Last week researchers noted that the station stopped transmitting and upon inspection, it was noted that someone had used bolt cutters to open the control panel housing and steal the solar panel.
The City is asking for the public’s help to keep an eye on these stations. If you see any suspicious activity or have any information regarding the theft of the McNabb Park station, please contact the Cocoa Beach Police Department at 321-868-3251.
