2008 Annual Report of the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program

The Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) is pleased to announce the release of the 2008 Annual Summary Report of the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program (CLMP). Visit www.micorps.net/lakereports.html to download the report and view the data collected for your lake.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) Water Bureau and Michigan Lake and Stream Associations, Inc. (ML&SA), recently joined by the Great Lakes Commission and the Huron River Watershed Council, have partnered to implement the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program (CLMP). The purpose of this effort is to help citizen volunteers monitor indicators of water quality in their lake and document changes in lake quality. The CLMP provides sampling methods, training, workshops, technical support, quality control, and laboratory assistance to the volunteer monitors. Michigan State University’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife supports the partnership with technical assistance. Please visit the MiCorps website (www.micorps.net) to learn more about the volunteer work supported under this program.

The Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) was created through an executive order by Governor Jennifer M. Granholm to assist the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in collecting and sharing water quality data for use in water resources management and protection programs.
