Lake Surveys: Summer 2019


To help guide lake management efforts, VLAWMO partners with the Ramsey Soil and Water Conservation Division (RSWCD) to conduct lake surveys. These surveys may include lake depth (bathymetry), aquatic vegetation, shoreline vegetation, and fish surveys. While some surveys are conducted to address a specific issue or need, many surveys follow a rotation according to the 10-year watershed plan. Several new vegetation and bathymetry surveys have been produced this summer, all of which are available on the respective lake pages under the waterbodies tab. 

Surveys completed in summer, 2019 include: 

Birch Lake Contours

East and West Goose Aquatic Vegetation

West Vadnais Aquatic Vegetation and Contours
