Description In 1989, Ecology added a statewide lake monitoring program to its ambient water quality monitoring network. The goals of the lake monitoring program are to identify lakes that are exhibiting water quality problems, to assess significant publicly-owned lakes by estimating the trophic status of monitored lakes, and to promote public awareness of lake ecology and protection. This program in 1989 consisted of (1) volunteer lake monitoring, (2) a conventional parameter water quality survey of a subset of the volunteer-monitored lakes, and (3) a toxic contaminant survey of fish tissues and sediments from nine lakes. This report presents results from the first two elements.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
