On Friday, July 29, at 2 pm, SCCF hosted a presentation to discuss SCCF's RECON and Florida Atlantic University's IRLON, which both provide real-time monitoring of water quality conditions. In the past, samples were collected manually and analyzed in a lab. It was virtually impossible to capture events as they were happening. SCCF's RECON, the River, Estuary, and Ocean Observing Network  and IRLON, the Indian River Lagoon Observatory Network of Environmental Sensors, provide real-time data.
