Officials from the consortium announced that they made it to the voting round of the grant they submitted to the Boat US. Foundation.
The grant will support the weather, water and wave buoy system that will be deployed this May in Lake Erie.
The buoys will provide real time data on the lake conditions that everyone can access.
A buoy system will be helpful to everyone who takes to the water.
If you would like to make this the best community supported buoy in the great lakes, log onto

Voting will continue until March 28th.
