Water Monitoring Report and Summary

VLAWMO's water monitoring program runs each year from May to September. In this timeframe, samples are taken every other week on most lakes in the watershed as well as multiple locations along Lambert Creek. The Water Monitoring Summary document provides a glimpse of the health of most waterbodies in the watershed based on averages in the data over time. Complete Water Monitoring Reports for specific years can also be found on our reports page. Additional Water Monitoring Reports from years past are available by request.
