Testing the Waters: Submarine could surface with answer to clean water

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - There is something lurking in the water of Lake Jennings. 

It's not a sea monster, but rather a tiny submarine that is part of a study testing the lake's water quality. 

On October 30th, a harmless dye called rota-meen was put into Lake Jennings by Scripps to track the mixing of purified water with the water of the lake.

Now more than ever, San Diego needs a study supply of water. They will collect the data with a submersible drone. 

Using advanced purified water could mean less water would need to be imported from the Colorado River.

News 8's Shawn Styles was able to get a close-up look and reports from Lake Jennings with more information.
