  • CLA Yahara Lakes Citizen Offshore Water Quality Monitoring 2016
  • Nicholas, Katie; Clean Lakes Alliance
  • 2016-10-11
  • In 2013, Clean Lakes Alliance (CLA) launched a Citizen Water Quality Monitoring pilot. Objectives included evaluating and tracking nearshore water quality conditions on all five Yahara lakes: Lakes Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, Kegonsa and Wingra. In 2016, in order to fully understand the interaction between the offshore and nearshore environment, CLA volunteers will begin sampling the deepest point (deep hole) of all Yahara lakes. The offshore monitoring program will focus on two components: water clarity sampling and dissolved oxygen and temperature measurement. Data from the offshore monitoring program will be compared to data from the nearshore program.
