Citizen Water Level Monitoring - Alternative Protocols
Return to Search
Record low water levels in some areas of Wisconsin affect both the health and recreation of lakes. In some inland lakes, low water levels have stranded nearshore habitat, left piers hundreds of feet from shore and rendered boat landings unusable. To address the growing concern for lake health brought on by drought, changing climate, and groundwater withdrawals, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin-Extension have developed a citizen-based, statewide lake-level monitoring effort.
This project will contain citizen lake level monitoring efforts that do not follow the established protocols, but may still contain useful data. Subprojects will describe the alternative protocol.
