UAV Flights Water Quality with Drones

Water Quality with Drones

Upcoming flights at the 'Lakes'

Mission plan for flight at the 'Lakes

James Cook University’s high-tech drones will take to the skies of Townsville on Tuesday 15th March to monitor the water quality of the 'lakes' near Castletown.

The drones will collect information about algal blooms, water turbidity, and even fish kills. The data will complement information being received from remote, automatic water quality sensors that have also been deployed in the lake by JCU and the Townsville City Council.

The drones will provide a ‘bird’s eye’ view of the lake and help develop a ‘spatial map’ of the lake to better manage water quality.
