Our plans are to continue our attempts to inform, evaluate, measure and take any steps necessary to protect the quality and health of our lakes.
The MPCA has established a monitoring schedule where they sample large lakes (greater than 500 acres) in a watershed for two years in a ten year cycle. Our lakes will be sampled in 2016 and 2017. The MPCA has recommended continued secchi monitoring and skipping the water chemistry monitoring unless a decline is seen in the secchi readings. We will continue water testing only if required by the DNR for the Lower Mission Curlyleaf Pilot Project. Regardless, we will continue with the CLMP secchi monitoring on both lakes.
