MCLA, with volunteers, continues to conduct annual water quality testing of our county lakes—if there is a volunteer monitor on the lake.
Gene Weyer, past MCLA president, heads up our monitoring program and also volunteers. He has been successful in securing funding and equipment to keep up the testing. Volunteer monitors are needed to collect samples three times a year: please contact Gene Weyer for more information on becoming a monitor.
The testing program is a cooperative effort. The DNR provides funding and supplies, while the lake testing volunteers provide the effort and time. Together, they give you a view to your lake’s current condition and alert you to any major changes.
