Water Quality Buoy

In the channel of the river, there is a real-time water quality testing buoy that is managed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Through its Eyes on the Bay program, data is collected every 15 minutes. The buoy collects data on water temperature, salt levels, pH, dissolved oxygen, how clear the water is, and chlorophyll, or the levels of algae in the water. This data is used to make decisions, check trends over time, and inform people of the water conditions. Click here to learn more about the water conditions of Mallows Bay: Current Conditions
