Implications for refugee management:
       Our data provides real time and historical water level data information for the Refugee
       and South Florida Water Management needs.

Plans for future research:
        No new activities planned at this time.
        Continuation of data collection activities for water year 2011.

Address and email changes:
      Add alternative staff member Jeff Woods (certified airboat driver).
