Big Twin Lake
Green Lake County, 78 Acres
One measure of a lakes health is the trophic state, which relates to the amount of algae in the water. The average summer trophic state for the last 5 years was 55 (Eutrophic) and was determined using satellite water clarity observations data. For a Deep Headwater lake, this is considered Good. Deep Headwater lakes stratify, or form separate layers of water, during the summer months and have a watershed area less than 4 square miles.
Big Twin Lake was monitored by volunteers between 2004 and 2006. Volunteers monitor water clarity with a black and white Secchi disk. Volunteers are the source of the majority of Wisconsin's lake water quality data, and their dedication is greatly appreciated. Additional monitoring has been done through projects funded in part by DNR Lake Grants. Reports and graphs featuring data collected by volunteers, DNR staff and others can be viewed below.
