LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - A high-tech sensor network for Lake George is on track for completion with a $917,000 National Science Foundation grant.

The three-year-old Jefferson Project at Lake George aims to protect the Adirondack lake by increasing the information available about things like stream runoff, rainfall and currents. Researchers are installing 41 “smart sensor platforms” that will collect about 9 terabytes of data a year. The information will provide a real-time digital view of conditions along the 32-mile-long lake.

About half of the 41 smart sensor platforms have been installed so far. The National Science Foundation grant will help fund completion of the network within the coming year.

The Jefferson Project is a collaboration of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, IBM Research and The Fund for Lake George.
