Lake Water Quality Monitoring in Washington State
Entry ID: wa_de_lakewaterquality

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Ecology has monitored rivers and streams since before 1959 and, due
largely to federal grants, were able to monitor lakes from 1989
through 1999. During that period, they collected data from more than
180 lakes, with help from about 250 volunteers. In 2000, however, they
were unable to obtain sufficient funding and had to discontinue the
full program.

Information was obtained from

Quality Lake Monitoring ended in 2000. The volunteer monitoring component
continued an additional year in 2001, but has now ended. We still file
data from volunteers who have chosen to continue, but we no longer
recruit new volunteers or meet with current volunteers. Nor are we
able to assess the data. At present, there is no state-wide monitoring
or assessment of lake water quality.
