After months of beautiful weather, the 2016 monitoring season is coming to a close. VLAWMO's regular water quality monitoring program includes nutrient sampling on 6 Lambert Creek sites, and nutrient sampling on 12 of the Vadnais Lake Area Watershed lakes. Nutrients and pollutants sampled for data include: total phosphorus, chlorophyll-A, soluble-reactive phosphorus, iron, total nitrogen, nitrate, total suspended solids, and chloride. VLAWMO's specialty monitoring programs, such as E coli and winter chloride sampling, will continue.
VLAWMO's annual water quality Monitoring Report summarizing the 2016 sampling season will be released this winter.
