Weather Station
Water Quality - 8/29/2019

Just a quick note to let you know our weather station at the Lake Grove swim park is displaying on the website again. It was down for a while during our remodel and now that we are established and have our network operating properly we were able to make the proper connections to have the data displayed again.

When you go the home page on your phone the "Current Conditions" will be prominently displayed. If you visit from your desktop it will be displayed below the image carousel. A snapshot of the data you will see is below.

However, I want to caution you about relying to heavily on the wind speed indication because we have a problem with arachnids throwing their webs all over the station. As you can see from the image above this location provides a great opportunity to catch insects. This becomes a problem when they build webs around the anenometer, which prevents it from turning in the wind.

No matter how many times we clean it off they rebuild as soon as it is calm enough to stop the anenometer from turning. We are looking at other options for wind measurement that do not have moving parts.
