Water Monitoring Slideshow

Each year from May to September, VLAWMO staff monitors 12 lakes and Lambert Creek every other week. The full monitoring report can be found here. The photo above explains the parameters we've used to summarize the water quality report, from reading water clarity with a Secchi disk and summarizing each lake with a letter grade. 

Each lake in the watershed has its own story, from the history of the lake to the issues it faces today. Some Lakes are in excellent condition, while some lakes are on the State impaired list. As a water management organization, we study and plan for how to keep our clean lakes clean, and how to improve our impaired ones. Through grant funds and our regular operations VLAWMO conducts projects for watershed improvement, found here. But watershed management also includes residents, businesses, Cities, and commuters. To learn more about how we all impact our local water quality and what we can do about it, head over to our resources page.
