    Default Water monitoring station at Manatee

    Hey guys,

    a couple of questions about a water monitoring station at Manatee springs. There's a BIG one about 4,000 feet back (maybe 2500-3000 feet past Friedmans)

    Does anyone know the exact distance on that thing? There were arrows near it but the distances on two arrows contradicted each other.

    Is there a URL where the data from it is available online? Who put it in and what's it monitoring?

    I don't have a problem with it, I'm just curious if it's measuring flow and if that data is easily available.

    Nice seeing you guys today. There's also a station in the blue water tunnel and in the sewer tunnel. Manatee is equipped

    There's actually two of them. They're flow meters.

    About 50' before the one you saw is a jump on the left with a tunnel that has some of the bluest water you'll ever see. There's a flow meter installed in that tunnel in addition to the one you saw in the main passage.

    They're roughly 2400' from Friedmans.

    only if the entire cave was that blue! That would be unreal

    Make it three.

    There's one in the Sewer Tunnel as well.
