Citizen Lake Monitoring Network
The Citizen Lake Monitoring Network, the core of the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership, creates a bond
between over 1000 citizen volunteers statewide and the Wisconsin DNR. Our goals are to collect high quality data,
to educate and empower volunteers, and to share this data and knowledge.
- Spring 2015 materials
Volunteers measure water clarity, using the
Secchi Disk method, as an indicator of water quality. Volunteers may also collect chemistry, temperature, and dissolved oxygen data, as well
as identify and map plants or watch for the first appearance of Eurasian Water Milfoil
near boat landings.

Citizen Lake Monitoring coordinator about getting started.
