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

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.
